Indicative of her drive and determination, Tricia enrolled in AP Literature, Honors Trigonometry, and Pre-Calculus despite already having fulfilled the majority of requirements for graduation.
When she’s not attending classes or studying, Tricia can be found practicing with the school’s soccer team or preparing for a Student Government Meeting. A dedicated volunteer, Tricia earned over 100 hours of service cleaning up local parks, collecting for food drives, and serving as a school tour guide during Open House.

Jahi Omari hopes to change the way hereditary diseases affect families as a medical geneticist who identifies, diagnoses, and ultimately prevents diseases like Diabetes, which impacts many of his family members. As a high school student he participates in university-level research at Johns Hopkins University that gives him practical experience in a lab environment and challenges his exploration of molecular biology at a deeper level.
When he’s not doing research or taking classes, Jahi is honing his oratory skills as a member of Poly’s award winning Urban Debate Team, socializing with friends in the school’s Anime Club or playing African Drums. Jahi volunteers at many organizations including The League for People with Disabilities and also supports food and toy drives through his church. He is a member of, and secretary of, the National Society of High School Scholars.
