Los Alamos High School 2011 graduate, Edward Dai, at the age of 18, recently graduated from Stanford University with university distinction.
He earned a bachelor’s of science degree in the mathematics honors program and a minor in economics, as well as a master’s of science degree in management science and engineering.
Dai spent four years in Stanford, holding several positions in the university, such as teaching assistant in the Computer Science Department, the head of teaching assistants, president of the Stanford University Mathematical Organization, director of the Stanford Mathematics Tournament, deputy director of the Mathematics Tournament China 2014, and the co-founder of a Stanford dance club.
Edward Dai and his parents, William Dai and Anna Zhang, would like to take this opportunity to praise the quality of education at Los Alamos, and thank the teachers in Mountain Elementary School, Los Alamos High School, and the Los Alamos Schools District, particularly then-superintendent Dr. Mary McLeod who initiated the accelerated program for talented students at Los Alamos when Dai was at his elementary School.
