Family raising funds to send teen to national conference

An Oak Glen High School student has been invited to the national Congress of Future Medical Leaders.

15-year-old Nicholas Rawson earned the recognition for posting consistently high grades, as well as his interest in the medical field.

“I just like to help people in general, and just help them with anything that I can honestly help them with – if I’m able to help them,” Rawson said.

Rawson’s family is posting an online fundraiser with a goal of $2,600 to help him get to Boston for the 3-day conference that meets in June.

Anyone interested in donating can go to their GoFundMe page.
