Several Academy men received the distinction of “Honorable Mention” in this year’s Moody’s Mega Math Challenge (M3), a national mathematics contest. CBA’s team ranked in the top 4 percent overall of the over 1,120 submissions received the distinction.
Under the director of CBA mathematics teacher Matt Reagan, seniors Kevin Boyle and Nicholas Karris along with juniors Daniel Draganoff, Brendan Fitzgerald, and Thomas Greenwald were recognized as one of the nation’s top 78 teams.
The Moody’s Foundation provides honorable mention teams with scholarship prizes in the amount of $1,000 per team, to be divided equally among the team’s members. The individual amounts will be paid directly to the colleges or universities at which the winning students ultimately enroll.
