Ben Lemery, son of Steve and Julie Lemery of Duvall, has been chosen to attend Summer Challenge at the Halbert and Nancy Robinson "Academy for Young Scholars" at the University of Washington for the 2010 summer quarter. The Robinson Center is a pioneer and an international leader in recognizing and serving the needs of gifted young pre-college students. Classes are offered on the UW-Seattle campus, and provide challenging and fun summer experiences for academically talented students. Ben will be taking physics as his summer class this year.
Ben is a 6th grader at Tolt Middle School in the Riverview School District. He is an honor roll student at Tolt; plays Red Wolves football, wrestled on the Tolt team, and plays baseball in the Sno-Valley North Little League where he was picked for All Stars. He is regularly seen around the valley in various volunteer activities. He enjoys sports, skateboarding, reading, video games, pool, air-softing, four wheeling and his tree fort. When asked what his favorite activity is, Ben is hard pressed to pick just one. His smile is contagious! "I like everything," he responds.
