Congratulations to Fridley High School (FHS) juniors Yangchen Namgyal and Asanti Ahmed who earned the Harvard Prize Book Award and Yale Book Award, respectively. Both Yangchen and Asanti were chosen because they are the top-ranked students in the FHS junior class.
The Harvard prize is given through the Harvard Club of Minnesota to an outstanding member of a high school junior class who demonstrates excellence in scholarship, as well as high achievement in other areas such as community service. Yangchen was awarded the book, “Justice, What’s The Right Thing To Do?”
The Yale award recognizes juniors for outstanding character and intellectual promise. Asanti received the book, “A Little History of the United States” through the Yale Alumni Association of the Northwest.
Congratulations Yangchen and Asanti!
