Reflections on Oliver

Earlier this week, almost fifty 12 and 13 year-old students gathered in lower Manhattan.  They came from 33 middle schools across all five boroughs.  They were artists, athletes, and authors, and they represented the top 10 percent of their respective 7th grade classes.  Selected from over 600 nominees from across New York City, they were the Oliver Scholars class of 2019.
