Sirisha Kona, the very proud mother of Walton High School junior Abhinav Kona, got in touch to let us know about her son’s perfect score of 1,600 in the Scholastic Aptitude Test.
He also got perfect scores in the subject SAT exams, an 800 in chemistry and 800 in math 2.
Here’s more from Sirisha about Abhinav’s involvement in academic and other activities at Walton and where he’s looking to attend college:
“He’s interested in neuroscience and plans to apply to many medical programs and colleges such as Northwestern, Stanford, Harvard, Brown, and the University of Michigan. He is actively involved in Walton’s math team, math and science honors society, science Olympiad, and Protein Modeling Club. At school, he enjoys playing the double bass and participating in chamber and GMEA’s all-state orchestra.
“Outside of the classroom, Abhinav cofounded a non-profit organization named the American Assimilation Helpline (AAH) to tutor refugees, immigrants, and low-income family students and provide a fair opportunity for all students to achieve high academic success wherever they are. The program is dedicated to providing free, personalized one-on-one tutoring sessions weekly, integrating student and parental preferences to match teachers with students based on teachers’ specialties.”
