Glenn junior to participate in honors science, technology leaders program

A local high school student has been nominated to participate in the Congress of Future Science and Technology Leaders in Lowell, Massaschuetts June 29-July 1.

Lee Bradford, a junior at Westland John Glenn High School, was nominated for the program to represent Michigan by John C. Mather, winner of the Nobel Prize in Physics and Science and director of the National Academy of Future Scientists and Technologists.

The nomination was based on Bradford’s academic achievement, leadership potential and passion for science and technology.

The congress is an honors-only program for high school students who are passionate about science, technology, engineering or mathematics. The purpose of this event is to honor, inspire, motivate and direct the top students in the country who aspire to be scientists and technologists, to stay true to their dream and, after the event, to provide a path, plan and resources to help them reach their goal.

During the three-day congress, Bradford will join students from across the country and hear Nobel Laureates and National Medal of Science recipients talk about leading scientific research; be given advice from deans of the world’s top tech universities; be inspired by fellow teen science prodigies; and learn about cutting-edge advances and the future of science and technology.
