Congratulations to seniors Kelsey Force and Sarah Coleman who applied and were chosen as St. Jude Science Scholars of Tomorrow. They and Mrs. Dahlberg will spend March 1 at St. Jude. There were hundreds of applicants who had to write essays and go through a rigorous process. They are among 100 students from 33 Memphis-area independent and public schools who were chosen.
"St. Jude Science Scholars of Tomorrow aims to bring high school students interested in science and healthcare to the St. Jude campus for a glimpse into the world of our scientists and clinicians. We want students to learn about some of the cutting-edge equipment we work with every day and hear about the discoveries happening on our campus.
But, we also want to go a step further. This program strives to inspire students to look beyond what they think they know about how science happens out in the world and to explore how their own interests can be applied in ways they never imagined to the pursuit of scientific progress. Our hope is that this new knowledge will inspire students to consider academic work and careers that will lead to the next generation of discoveries."
