Friday, January 27, 2012

It's a great ending to a whirlwind week for a homeless teenage science whiz on Long Island.

Saturday, the Suffolk County Executive will present Samantha Garvey and her family with keys to their own home.

Samantha, who was living in a homeless shelter with her family, became news after she was named a semi-finalist in the Intel Science Competition.

She didn't make the finals, but what a week she's had.

On Tuesday, she was a guest of the President at his State of the Union Address.
