 THIRTY-FIVE SILICON VALLEY STUDENTS WIN IBM SCHOLARSHIPS
 SAN JOSE, Calif., May 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Thirty-five Silicon Valley students are among 359 national winners of Thomas J. Watson Memorial Scholarships from IBM (NYSE: IBM), and for one San Jose family it's a three-star event, the company announced today.
 When IBM ADSTAR senior engineer Daniel T. Tsai of San Jose first heard the news his pride doubled, well, actually tripled. You see, fraternal twins Raymond C. and Tinyee L. Tsai -- this year's winners -- join sister Conyee who is enjoying her third year as a Watson Scholar at Stanford University.
 These Leland High School twins, like the other 33 winners, will share scholarships ranging from $2,000 to $8,000 per year depending upon need. The scholarships are renewable for four years.
 The other local winners are: Jeanne M. Acceturo, Sophoclis P. Alexopoulos, Neel R. Bhatia, Jeana M. Blackman, Gregory M. Chin, Si-lam J. Choy, Anthony P. Corchero, Holly J. Coty, Gregory L. Fair, Aaron P. Hertzman, David L. Hobbs, David R. Hunn, Lisa D. Jerves, Carolyn E. Johnson, Jonathan M. Lee, Michael C. Lee, Tyrone Lee, Andrew B. Liao, Annie A. Liu, Wayne L. Lo, Bryan B. Ma, Shelley A. Miller, Nicholas S. Norberg, Peter D. Peng, Colleen J. Pickett, Jenny E. Scheuerleain, Patrick M. Shields, Steven Y. Tengan, Barbara E. Thompson, Jeffrey K. Tong, Pricia L. Weichert, Sonia S. Wong and Jean Yoon.
 IBM also sponsors 15 National Merit/National Achievement Scholarships for minority students who are not related to IBM employees.
 IBM established the Thomas J. Watson Memorial Scholarship Program in 1957 as a tribute to the company's founder and first chairman. Since then, nearly 6,000 children of active, retired and deceased IBM employees have received scholarships valued at more than $46 million. Winners are chosen based on test scores, academic record, leadership and extracurricular activities.
