CSE’s Eric Lei is University of Washington Junior Medalist

Eric LeiEach year, the University of Washington recognizes the top student (of roughly 7,500) in the previous year’s Freshman, Sophomore, and Junior classes as class Medalists.

This year’s UW Junior Medalist is CSE’s Eric Lei.  Eric, who entered the UW after 10th grade through the Robinson Center’s UW Academy, was last year’s Freshman Medalist.  (Your correspondent is a systems guy, so is not concerned by the arithmetic implicit in that statement.)

Eric is the eighteenth CSE student to be recognized as a University of Washington Medalist since 2000 (including the Freshman, Sophomore, and Junior Medal, plus the President’s Medal awarded to the top graduating senior, most recently CSE’s Melissa Winstanley) – fully 1/3 of the medals awarded during that period.

Congratulations to Eric – and to CSE’s many superb students!  (Including Eric’s sister Jinna – a current UW CSE Ph.D. student who did her undergraduate work at Cal.)
