Northport High School senior Camden Burk has lots to be proud of this year. From being honored as a National Merit Semifinalist earlier this school year to being named the Math Rotary Student of the Month, Camden has been a star student. During the October 15th Board of Education meeting, held via Zoom, the district and Board honored Camden and congratulated him on his hard work.
Camden’s history of excelling in math began in middle school, when he entered the school’s double accelerated program and received a third-place score in eighth grade in the American Math Contest. He went on to complete all three Regents exams with an average score of 95 by the time he finished his freshman year at Northport High School. Camden has twice earned silver medals at the Long Island Math Fair for his research on math and climate change and has been on the mathletes team every year since his middle school days.
As recipient of Rotary Student of the Month, Camden and his family were able to attend the Rotary luncheon. While he is still determining his next steps, Camden hopes to join the conservation field and major in environmental or geological science.
“Camden is brilliant and confident, yet he is quite humble and affable,” shared Chairperson of Mathematics Robin Rann, who awarded Camden with the recognition. “We are very happy that he is receiving this recognition.”
