ORHS’s Savannah Shropshire nominated for Congress of future medical leaders

OAK RIDGE, Tenn. — Savannah Shropshire, a freshman at Oak Ridge High School, is a delegate to the Congress of Future Medical Leaders, a three-day event scheduled to be held June 25 through 27 in Lowell, Massachusetts.

“The Congress is an honors-only program for high school students who want to become physicians or go into medical research fields,” a release stated. “The purpose of this event is to honor, inspire, motivate and direct the top students in the country who aspire to be physicians or medical scientists, to stay true to their dream and, after the event, to provide a path, plan and resources to help them reach their goal.”

Savannah was nominated by Dr. Robert Darling — the medical director of the National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists — “to represent Oak Ridge High School based on her academic achievement, leadership potential and determination to serve humanity in the field of medicine.”
