Leo presented Chatham Hall Award

Chatham Hall representative Jacqueline Comola and Chesapeake Academy Academic Dean Dr. James Hall congratulate Layla Grace Leo (center) on being selected as the recipient of the Chatham Hall Science Award for 2018.

Chesapeake Academy in Irvington has announced that sixth-grader Layla Grace Leo is the recipient of the Chatham Hall Science Award for 2018. This monetary award contributes toward a student tuition for Chatham Hall’s Summer Investigators Camp, an exciting science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM) opportunity for middle school girls. Leo’s receipt of this award indicates excellence in academics, a love of science, and evident leadership skills.

Chesapeake Academy Head of School Julianne Keesee said, “Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, integrated with the Arts (STEAM) has long been thoroughly integrated into the Chesapeake Academy curriculum, and we have had many opportunities to admire Layla Leo’s critical thinking, creative, and collaborative skills. She will be a valuable team member.”

Layla Leo is the daughter of Benjamin and Lauren Leo of Weems.

Chatham Hall’s Summer Investigators Science camp is built around the development of a student’s 21st-century skills, especially those related to problem-solving, collaboration and curiosity. This is accomplished through the integration of the areas of biology, chemistry, and technology into a program where students assume the role of crime scene investigators in order to solve a mock crime. Student acceptance is based on their interest and ability in science as reported on their school transcripts and their science teacher recommendations.
