D’Nae Leana Lee is a 15-year-old Blue Ridge High School freshman who realized in eighth grade that she had an interest in a medical career.
She says she “wants to go into the medical field where I’m helping people.”
D’nae has worked hard all through junior high school and in her first year of high school. As as a result, has been invited to the National Academy of Future Physicians and Medial Scientists Congress. This is a prestigious honor which will allow her to attend the event June 25-27 in Lowell, Mass.
The Congress of Future Medical Leaders is a highly selective national program honoring academically superior high school students dedicated to the service of humanity through medicine. This is an “honors-only” program for high school students who want to become physicians or go into medical research fields.
D’Nae will represent Blue Ridge High School “based on her academic achievement, leadership potential and determination to serve humanity in the field of medicine.”
This three-day event in Massachusetts is designed to honor, inspire, motivate and direct the top students in the country who aspire to be physicians or medical scientists. The National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists explain that, “the program encourages these students to stay true to their dream and after the event, to provide a path, plan and resources to help them reach their goal.”
