CS Prof David Gries Honored by 2017 Merrill Scholar

Kudos to computer science student Yezy Lim '17, who has been named one of 33 2017 Merrill Presidential Scholars. Merrill scholars are selected by their college deans for their intellectual drive, leadership abilities, and potential to contribute to society. The seniors, in turn, each nominate a high school teacher and a Cornell faculty member who have been most influential in their development as students and scholars. Lim chose CS Professor David Gries as her most influential Cornell faculty member. She took classes from Gries as well as serving as his undergrad TA. All were honored at the 29th annual Merrill Presidential Scholars convocation lunch held May 24.
