Sacred Heart Seniors: Emily Ludwig and Meredith McCaffrey named to ALL-WNY ACADEMIC TEAM


Buffalo Academy of the Sacred Heart senior class members, Emily Ludwig and Meredith McCaffrey, have been named to Business First's 2013 All-Western New York Academic Team. This special honor is given to the 100 most outstanding high school seniors in the eight-county region.

Winners were chosen for their records of academic excellence, school leadership, and community involvement. The top 25 were named to the First Team, 25 runners-up to the Second Team, and another 50 to the Special Mention list.

"This is an extremely exclusive award," said Jack Connors, president and publisher of Business First. "There are roughly 20,000 seniors in Western New York's high schools, and we've selected only 100 for this year's Academic Team. That's the upper one-half of one percent. They're truly the best and brightest students anywhere in our region."

Schools throughout the eight-county area were asked to nominate their smartest and most accomplished students for consideration by an eight-member committee, which included six admissions directors at area colleges and two Business First editors. A total of 121 schools responded with 437 nominees.

The complete list of the 100 honorees, along with their photos and profiles, will be published in Business First's 2013-2014 Guide to Western New York Schools, which will hit newsstands on June 14.
