Sydney Zarrish Condie  
Sydney graduates top of her class at East Grand Rapids High School.  She is interested in pursuing a career in aeronautical or nuclear engineering and to study at either the University of Michigan or Yale University.  

Besides being an academic leader and having excellent test scores, Sydney had very impressive letters of recommendation from her AP instructors.  Her Physics teacher wrote:  “Sydney is a motivated and accomplished student.  She has all of the academic skills to do well in any program she wishes to pursue.  Not only are her problem solving abilities first rate, but her work ethic allows her to apply her many talents effectively.  In addition, Sydney is a reliable athlete and leads by example both on the field and off.  I have rarely been able to recommend a student as enthusiastically as I recommend Sydney”.     

Sydney’s math instructor and Chairperson of the Mathematics Department writes: “Sydney is one of the best students I have ever worked with.  She has consistently written outstanding scores throughout her math courses.  Sydney has completed all of the mathematics courses that the College Board offers.  She has one of the highest grade points in our school and has taken the most challenging academic course we offer.  Her maturity and overall attitude additionally impress me.  She sets high expectations for herself and meets her own personal standards.”   

To be a class leader one has to excel beyond academics and Sydney has certainly met that challenge.  Among her many outside activities she was captain of both her varsity field hockey and softball teams, president of the National Honors Society and was a member of We the People-Constitutional Debate Team.  She also participated in Habitat for Humanity, Relay for Life, Bible Study Fellowship and volunteered at the Southwest Community Center.  

The Roger B. Chaffee Scholarship Fund is extremely proud to have Sydney as its 42nd Scholar.
