Selinam Mortey, a participant from PRESEC in the 2023 National Science and Mathematics Quiz (NSMQ), successfully won the competition for his team and lived up to a promise he had made during high school.
His mother, Elizabeth Mortey, disclosed that Selinam’s elder sibling, Selassie Mortey, also competed for PRESEC in 2019 and was barely beaten to Augusco’s trophy by a mere 5 points.
