Congratulations to Akhokem Amin, who has been accepted for fall admission to Drexel University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  A student at ISD for all four years of high school, Akhokem plans to major in Psychology.  She has also applied to several other universities and will not make a decision on which university to attend until later in the spring.  Drexel has recognized Akhokem's strong academic achievements and potential by offering her the prestigious Dean's Scholarship in the amount of $13,500.  Way to go, Akhokem!
