Statement from Chancellor Dennis M. Walcott on the Winning Chess Team at the Bronx Center for Science and Mathematics


“I want to congratulate the students of the chess team at Bronx Center for Science and Mathematics on winning the US Chess Federation’s National Chess Tournament for the 12th Grade.  I also want to congratulate Principal Tom for incorporating this program in the school. These students have excelled in chess and these same qualities -- determination and a drive to excel -- are qualities that will benefit them in so many ways as they prepare for college and careers.”
