East Islip High School junior Ruelin Man-Martinez was named the winner of this year’s Rensselaer Medal, which recognizes excellent academic achievement and serves to inspire students pursuing careers in engineering, science and technology.

Founded in 1824, the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York, is the oldest technological institution in North America. For more than 100 years, they have awarded the Rensselaer Medal to exemplary high school juniors who excel in the areas of math and science. This merit scholarship has a value of $120,000 and is guaranteed for four years for each medalist who applies, is accepted and enrolls at Rensselaer.

“Ruelin is a hardworking and involved young man who is looking to pursue a degree in engineering,” said Jenn Salvaggio, his school counselor. “There is no doubt in my mind that he will find much success during his college years and beyond.”
