Celebrating Our 2017 Graduating Seniors

We will be posting a new graduating senior profile each day leading up to May 26, the last day for seniors.
Graduating Senior:  Dylan Korotkin

Dylan Korotkin

New Town High School (New Town Elementary School, Sudbrook Magnet Middle School)

Tell us about a teacher, assignment, field trip, or extracurricular activity that had a significant impact on you during your years as a BCPS student?

At the beginning of my senior year, I was accepted to an internship at the Johns Hopkins Medical Simulation Center. My mentor, Mr. Dodson, customized the internship around my field of interest. As someone studying to become a neuroscience researcher, I was excited to potentially witness and experience events and procedures directly tied to neuroscience and neurology. This internship has built on the knowledge I acquired during my 3-year biomedical program.

During your years as a BCPS student, what did you accomplish that you are most proud of? 

I have achieved Honor Roll status every quarter in high school. I currently have a 3.78 cumulative GPA.

What’s next for you? What are your college or employment plans immediately after graduation?

After high school, I will be attending college as a neuroscience major.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

Ten years from now, I should have a Ph.D in the field of neuroscience research. I would be working towards my certification at that point and pursuing my career.

“Dylan Korotkin is one of the most motivated and driven people that I have ever met. He is fascinated with the brain and desires degrees and a career in neuroscience. This in part comes from his experience in overcoming adversities. Dylan’s road to an AP student that earns a 4.0 wasn’t easy for him. He works harder than anyone that I know.  This has also motivated him to learn as much as he could about the brain so that eventually he can help other people overcome challenges and experience success as he has. Even with his busy academic schedule and internship at Johns-Hopkins in neuroscience that was developed just for him, he always has time to help others. He loves learning and helping others to learn. He spends time with special education students as a math expert, helping wherever he can. Dylan has a kind soul and a warm heart. He has become a role model for others on shooting for the stars and is proof that hard work pays off.“
