Elaina Landrum

"Although Elaina [Landrum] is academically superior,
she is not the stereotypical nerd," Janet Tripp-Smith, an
English teacher at Lumpkin County High School, wrote
in a letter of recommendation for Landrum. "Leadership
comes naturally to her; she is beloved by her peers for her
courage and grace in handling delicate matters."
Landrum of Gainesville was a member of the school's
band all four years of high school and was drum major
in her junior and senior years. She also served as a peer

mentor, played basketball and was a member of the National Honor Society, the Literary Team and the Science
Olympiad team. She held leadership roles in several of
these organizations and served as class president in ninth
grade and class vice president in 10th grade.
She was selected to attend the Governor's Honors
Program in communicative arts after her sophomore year
and earned several awards, including AP Scholar with
Distinction (granted to students with an average score of
at least 3.5 on all Advanced Placement exams taken and
scores of 3 or higher on at least five of these exams), Yale
Alumni Book Award, National Merit Commended Scholar and Georgia Music Educators Association 9th District
Honor Band. Landrum also was the STAR Student (highest SAT score).
Landrum worked with the administrations at her high
school and at the neighboring middle school to develop a
mentorship program for sixth-grade band members.
"I envisioned an opportunity to grow and develop
the band program, to teach and work in a discipline I
have mastered," she says.
She plans to continue to "cultivate my passions for
meaningful research and global innovation" at Georgia
Tech. "Perhaps solar power will be fully actualized or a
blood substitute will be successfully harvested at Georgia
Tech, where I want to dream and innovate."

Andrew John Masters

'I plan on giving back to all of the groups and
people that have helped me accomplish my goals.'
At Westover High, Masters was a member of the National Honor Society, for which he served as president,
and the FIRST Robotics Team, for which he served as safety captain and lead mechanical engineer. He also devoted
his time to the Porterfield Methodist Church Technology
Team, the Experimental Aircraft Association and the Boy
Scouts of America, in which he earned the prestigious
rank of Eagle Scout and worked as a troop instructor.
He was a regional winner at the Technology Fair
when he was in 10th grade and was selected to attend the
Governor's Honors Program. He also was a Washington
15C

BETH MCMILLAN

Andrew John Masters of Albany maintained straight
A's throughout high school, but there is much more to
him than a flawless academic record.
"Andrew is truly a Renaissance man," Kathy Hardison,
English teacher at Westover High School, wrote in a letter of recommendation. "He is a thinker and a problemsolver, a philosopher and a writer, an artist and a builder,
a leader and a worker. ... One of the projects he has taken
on for fun is the restoration of an old sailboat and learning to sail."

Diverse Power sponsored Andrew John Masters and two other
delegates-Skylar Crowe, left, and Elizabeth Veal-on the 2016
Washington Youth Tour.

Youth Tour delegate sponsored by Diverse Power.
Masters wants to pursue a doctorate in computer science or engineering.
"Whatever my career path, there are a few things I
am adamant about," he says. "For one, I certainly plan on
continuing my involvement with the Boy Scouts. I plan
on giving back to all of the groups and people that have
helped me accomplish my goals. And I certainly do not
design to stop helping others, as that is one of the things
that makes me, well, me."
