Lea Jabbour, a member of the FASNY class of 2014, is among this year's recipients of the Frederick E. Terman Engineering Scholastic Award, one of Stanford University's most selective scholastic prizes. Based on overall academic performance, it is presented to only the top five percent of each year's undergraduate senior engineering class. The award is named after Fred Terman, who served as dean of Stanford's School of Engineering from 1944 to 1958.
On April 14, in recognition of their achievement, Stanford will host a celebratory lunch for the Terman Award winners, to which their most influential college academic advisor, as well as the secondary school teacher who most influenced their scholastic career, have been invited. Former FASNY physics and chemistry teacher Manuela Vu Trieu, who taught Lea in high school, plans to attend and will speak briefly about her at the event.
