American School Graduate Becomes Youngest U. of Chicago M.D. Recipient

Sho Yano, who earned his American School diploma in 2000 at age 9 and earned the W.L. Wright Scholarship the same year, is about to become the youngest recipient of an M.D. degree from the University of Chicago.  The Chicago Tribune outlined his journey in a front-page article that appeared in yesterday's editions.  We are immensely proud of Sho and his accomplishments, as well as those of his sister, Sayuri, a 2006 American School graduate who is continuing her education at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore.  Sho and Sayuri are two of the many examples of American School graduates who have gone on to do great things after earning their diplomas.  Visit our Community page to see the names and accomplishments of some of the others who have done the same.
