Only a few high school seniors in the US get admitted to all eight Ivy League schools each year. Ronald Nelson, a young man who attends my local high school, is one. Another is Harold Ekeh, a Nigerian immigrant from New York. Ekeh is an academic all-star with straight As in school and a near perfect SAT. Mr. Ekeh aspires to be a neurosurgeon and cure Alzheimer’s Disease. If people like Harold choose to devote their lives to this worthy cause, there is certainly reason to believe we’ll one day end that terrible disease.Best of luck, Harold!
