Congratulations to LHS and WPHS Science Research Award Winners. If you do not hope, you will not find what is beyond your hope. We are all inventors, each sailing out on a voyage of discovery, guided each by a private chart, of which there is no duplicate. The world is all gates, all opportunities ( R. W.E.). Wish you all much success. Vishnu Patel Councilman
