A New York teen who was living at a homeless shelter when she was picked as a semifinalist in a prestigious national science competition has moved into her new home.
Samantha Garvey and her family were handed the keys to their house in Bay Shore, Long Island on Saturday.
Garvey says she was "overwhelmed" by the support and generosity she's received since being named a semifinalist in the Intel Science contest last month. She wasn't among the 40 finalists.
The Brentwood High School senior and her family had been living in a homeless shelter when her two years of research on a mussel population garnered her accolades.
Suffolk County officials helped find a three-bedroom home where the family could live.
