Congratulations to LHS rising sophomore Alexis H. on her selection to be a part of the Voelcker Biomedical Research Academy.
Students selected to The Voelcker Biomedical Research Academy receive training in biomedical research for a 3-year period. According to their website, "In year 1, the Academy consists of an engaging, hands-on, 7 -week summer research program, in addition to participation in a number of special enrichment and research-oriented activities throughout the academic year. In years 2 and 3, students participate in a faculty-mentored research experience. Students are supported through stipends during the summers of the program and parental involvement is also required. The metric for success of the Academy is the development of a pool of highly competitive students in San Antonio and surrounding areas who successfully pursue future careers in biomedical research in our community."
We are excited about this opportunity for Lexi and all the doors this opportunity opens for her. Congratulations and God's blessings on your work!
