Martin Luther School‘s very own Margaret Vera and Isabel Vera were nominated for the Congress of Future Medical Leaders and the Congress of Future Science and Technology, an honors-only program for high school students interested in the Science, Medicine, & Technology Fields.
In June and July, the two students will attend events in Lowell, MA where other top students from across the country will participate in a three-day conference.
During the event, students have the opportunity to hear Nobel Laureates and National Medal of Science Winners talk about their leading scientific research. “This is a crucial time in America when we need more nimble-minded and creative scientists who are even more prepared for a future that is changing exponentially,” says Richard Rossi, who is the Executive Director for the National Academy of Future Physicians and Technologists.
Margaret Vera is a 10th grader and will be a Delegate to the Congress of Future Medical Leaders. She was nominated by Dr. Mario Capecchi, winner of the Nobel Prize in Medicine and the Science Director of the National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists. She was nominated to represent Martin Luther School based on her academic achievement, leadership potential, and determination to serve humanity in the field of medicine.
Her twin sister, Isabel Vera, is a 10th grader and was nominated for the Congress of Future Science and Technology Leaders. She was nominated by Dr. John C. Mather, winner of the Nobel Prize in Physics and Science Director of the National Academy of Future Scientists and Technologists. Isabel was chosen based on her academic performance, leadership abilities, and passion for science and technology.
Both of the students will have access to leading research in their respective fields, online networks with future professionals, advice from Deans of the top universities, and true inspiration from the cutting-edge technology and education. We are so proud of Margaret and Vera for this incredible recognition, and we wish them luck as they plan their trips to attend these incredible events that will help shape their promising futures.
