Midland student accepted to Harvard

Local News

MIDLAND, Texas (Nexstar) – Pranav Ganta, Lee High School senior, has many choices when it comes to college. One of those choices is Harvard.

Ganta received an acceptance letter from the prestigious college last month.

“I’ve applied at several Universities and this was just the first one I’ve heard back from,” said Ganta. “It could be into March before I hear from all of them and am able to narrow down my final selection.”

Ganta is still waiting to hear back from Princeton, Stanford, MIT, and Yale.

His list of achievements includes a 4.81 GPA, captain of the debate team, fluent in three languages, and frequent volunteering. He even wrote a biology guidebook for children.

“He works so hard at his studies,” said Lee Principal Shannon Torres. “But still keeps his schedule so he has time for his many other enrichment activities that benefit him, our campus, and the community.”

Once Ganta selects where to enroll, he plans to study neuroscience and later pursue a PhD or MD.
