  • United States Mathematics Olympiad

    Austin Li has qualified for the United States Mathematics Olympiad!  This is a pretty big deal, as there were only about 220 qualifiers in the nation – Austin was the only qualifier from Kentucky, and the first qualifier from Dunbar since Kathleen Yang 3 years ago.

    Congrats Austin and good luck!
