Four Tallulah Falls School seniors received good news with an early action acceptance to the Georgia Institute of Technology.

Seniors accepted to Georgia Tech are Mark Faingold of Russia, Emma Peacock of Dillard, Victoria Sesam of Sautee-Nacoochee and Xuan (Arthur) Yang of the People’s Republic of China.

More than 15,700 students applied for Early Action [EA] admittance to the 2017 class with a deadline of Oct. 15. According to the Georgia Tech website, this is a 5 percent increase over last year and among Georgia residents, applications are up 25 percent over the last six years.

“These four TFS seniors were a part of a highly-competitive selection process,” said TFS College Counselor Bobby Hammond.

Students accepted under EA are automatically considered for academic scholarships.

“We are extremely proud of these accomplished students,” President and Head of School Larry A. Peevy said. “This group is among the brightest of the TFS Class of 2017.”
