  • Cremers Named FTC Dean's List Finalist

    SGS junior Connor Cremers is one of just three FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) robotics students in the state of Washington to be named a FTC Dean's List Award Finalist. "His enthusiasm is infectious, resulting in young team members that are energized and excited about robotics and FIRST," says Robotics coach Rick DeFord. Connor started in FTC in Middle School as a standout team member, helping lead SGS to the finals of the Interleague Championships. As an Upper School student, he has become a mentor for younger students and organized summer robotics camps. He also was part of the SGS Ambassador team that spent time the past two summers teaching teams in Shenzhen, China. "It was amazing to watch Connor working with Chinese students on technical issues that they were having and seeing results despite the communication barriers that existed," says DeFord.

    The FIRST Dean’s List recognizes student leaders who have led their teams and communities to increased awareness for FIRST Robotics and its mission. Only about 150 students nationwide are honored as Finalists out of about 50,000 FTC participants. Connor is invited to the World Championships in Houston in April where 10 of the Finalists will be named Dean's List Winners. "These are the only individual student awards for FIRST nationwide," says DeFord. "Winners are actively recruited by Ivy League and other top universities." Congratulations, Connor!
