Notes:
IN 2008, she was the top Grade Six Achievement Test performer at Our Lady of the Angels Prep School. Four years later, 15-year-old Tiffanie Williams has continued on the path of excellence with her latest achievement landing herself a spot in the National Society of High School Scholars (NSHSS). "I went on a tour of both New York University and Columbia University ... . It's gated and I like that. I also like its Greek-style infrastructure! I just like it," she said. Until I get to know the others, I have my eyea set on Columbia University, [Tiffanie] said. "It's a proud moment .... Tiffanie is an unusual child and she has done well over the years. She is motivated and strong and a leader in her own ways. She has the full support of both parents," Howell said.
