Kyle Grimaldi, son of Lawrence and Sally Grimaldi, was recently named a 2011-2012 Outstanding Undergraduate Scholar at Rochester Institute of Technology in New York.
Kyle is studying chemistry in RIT's College of Science and is a graduate of Gloucester High School.
Outstanding Undergraduate Scholarship Awards are presented to students who have achieved the distinction of maintaining a minimum university grade point average of 3.85 out of a possible 4.0 and completed at least 125 quarter credit hours of study, nearly two-thirds of the credit hours required for a baccalaureate degree. Selection is also based on other factors complementing academic achievement, such as creative work, service on student committees, civic activities, employment and independent research. Each RIT scholar receives a bronze medallion representing the traditional symbols for wisdom and respect — the Athenian owl and the olive branch.
