An Emma Willard student is receiving a special honor from Congress. Congressman Paul Tonko was in Troy Monday to recognize Robyn Wu.

They are the winner of the “2022 Congressional App Challenge” in New York’s 20th Congressional District.

Their app is called “Vultures of Emma.” It’s a one-stop hub for students, faculty and members of the community to learn more about the 50 vultures who can often be seen perched on top of the buildings on the Emma Willard campus.

Wu gathered information, then personally coded the entire website from scratch.
