Student Selected To Attend National Youth Science Camp

High School senior, Daniel Grigsby, has been selected as one of two Iowa students to attend the National Youth Science Camp. The National Youth Science Camp is a residential science education program that honors and challenges two graduating high school science students from each state. Scientists from across the nation present lectures and hands-on science seminars and linger to interact informally with student delegates. Delegates are challenged to explore new areas in biological and physical sciences, art, and music with resident staff members. Opportunities are provided for delegates to present seminars covering their own areas of interest and research. A visit to Washington D.C. permits delegates to visit some of the nation’s premier scientific, governmental, and cultural facilities. The NYSC experience includes overnight expeditions into the Monongahela National Forest featuring backpacking, rock-climbing, caving, mountain biking, or kayaking opportunities. The MYSC is offered at no cost. All educational and recreational programming, as well as meals, lodging, and round-trip air passage on scheduled airlines are provided free of charge to the delegates.  Daniel will attend the camp from June 29 through July 23. Congratulations, Daniel!

High School Student Is Finalist For Award

High School senior, Mackenzie Small, was selected as one of 6 finalists for the E. Wayne Cooley Scholarship Award. This program was established in tribute to the personage who is most responsible for making the Iowa girl athlete number one in the nation. Candidates for the award are nominated by their local schools and the selection committee narrows it to 6 finalists, who then go to Des Moines for an interview. The candidates chosen reflect discipline, perseverance, character, superior athletic skill, leadership, academic achievement and citizenship traits that have personified the life and expectations of Dr. E. Wayne Cooley. Although Mackenzie was not selected as the top winner, it was an honor to be selected as a finalist. Hinton has had only a few who made the finalist level in the past. All of the finalists will receive a $1000 scholarship grant. Congratulations Mackenzie!
