Connelly senior wins award at Orange County Science and Engineering Fair
Posted on: April 16, 2010

Connelly senior Cassandra Stambuk received an honorable mention in the Orange County Science and Engineering Fair at Orange County Fairgrounds earlier this month.

Stambuk, of Yorba Linda, and two other Cornelia Connelly School students - Liana Rizkalla, a freshman and Emily Rosales, a sophomore - participated in the countywide competition April 5-11. Connelly's students all had excellent projects in the school's annual Science Fair in February.

At the Orange County competition: Stambuk won an honorable mention in the category of zoology. Her project detailed the coat coloring in American Paint Horses. Rizkalla, of Yorba Linda, competed in the pharmacology category with her project on the antibiotic affects on E. Coli. Rosales, of Villa Park, competed in chemistry with her project titled Calorimetry of Oils.

Stambuk, 17, graduates in June and recently signed a Letter of Intent to attend Auburn University in the fall. She received both academic and athletic scholarships and will compete with the university's Division 1 Women's Equestrian Team. Stambuk is No. 1 in the nation for the American Paint Horse Association (14-18 group) in reining for two years in a row.
