CANTON, Mass., Aug. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Organogenesis Inc., a commercial leader in the field of regenerative medicine, is announcing Symone Isaac-Wilkins as the winner of its annual college scholarship.

Symone, who graduated among the top in her class with a GPA of 4.57, is attending Harvard University this fall to study neurobiology. An accomplished student, Symone has been active in many extra-curricular activities, including serving as team captain of Canton High School's Mock Trial, the president of the Canton High School Science Club and a Link Crew leader in mentoring freshmen. Symone was also recognized by the National Honor Society and Spanish National Honor Society.
