Portlaoise scholar Evan scoops double maths awards

Naughton scholar Evan Bracken from Portlaoise continues to notch up awards for his Leaving Cert grades.

The St Mary’s CBS graduate, now an engineering student at UCD, recently accepted the Irish Maths Teachers Association/Accenture Analytics Excellence Award, given to only three Irish students for the most meritorious results in Leaving Cert honours maths.

He also received the award from the Irish Applied Maths TA for the highest result in Ireland for Applied maths.

Evan, from Grenville in Portlaoise, is delighted with the further awards for his top results on top of the €20,000 Naughton Scholarship.

“Each of these students have bright futures ahead. The Leaving Cert honours maths exam is very demanding, requiring a high degree of accuracy and a proven ability to problem solve. We are delighted to give recognition to their talents,” Brendan O’Sullivan, chairperson IMTA.
