Tunstall student headed to national conference

A Tunstall High School freshman will spend part of his summer vacation meeting Nobel Prize and National Medal of Science winners and learning about the medical field at the Congress of Future Medical Leaders conference in June.

Tunstall student Nathan Henley was nominated for the conference as a Danville delegate by Dr. Robert Darling, the medical director of the National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists. The conference is an honors-only program for high school students interested in the medical profession as a future career.

Ever since watching medical dramas on television as a child, Henley said he has been interested in the career field.
