SALT LAKE CITY — Brother, brother.
Twice in four years, two brothers have been selected General Sterling Scholar in the Deseret News/KSL’s Sterling Scholar program.
To hear this year’s winner, Alexander Cheng of Hillcrest High School, tell it, he was deeply honored to be among 168 finalists in the 57th annual scholarship and recognition program. He also won the science category.
“It’s truly an honor to even be here so I’m truly blessed to have won and to be recognized. I’m so grateful, especially to my parents for all of their support and help. I think they’re really crucial. My brother actually won General Sterling Scholar three years ago. It just goes to show the dedication and the influence they’ve had on us so I really thank my parents,” Cheng said.
