School: Arundel Senior High.

Accomplishments, Interests:

Robert recently scored a perfect 800 on the math section of the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT), better known as college boards.

According to the College Board Admission Testing Program offices in New Jersey, only 1 percent of all students nationwide who take the SAT receive a perfect score on the math section.

In addition to his regular math instruction at Arundel High, Robert received tutoring from the Sylvan Learning Center SAT preparatory program.

Jean Whitaker, director of the Sylvan office in Crofton, said it "wasn't hard to see that Rob had great potential in the math area."

Bill Blewitt, a retired county school counselor who kept informal records, recalls only about a half-dozen cases of such an accomplishment in his 25 years as a counselor.

Robert is a member of student government, the Key Club, Future Business Leaders of America, the Chess Club and the Math Club, in addition to the varsity cross country and indoor-outdoor track teams.

Outside of school, Robert enjoys sailing with his father and last summer worked as a captain's mate for Sailaway Charters.

His future plans include attending the Naval Academy.
