Sanford Selects PROMISE Scholars

June 5, 2014, 2:49 PM by Jaine Andrews

Sanford Research has selected five high school students and six area educations as PROMISE scholars and science educators as PROMISE scholars and science educator fellows for 2014.

 

The Sanford PROMISE program connects communities with new frontiers in science and research. The goal of the program is to increase community understanding of science, and raise awareness of the benefits of research. The programs provides both students and teachers with real-life medical experience by offering regional high school students opportunities to complete research projects in mentor laboratories at Sanford Research over the summer, between their junior and senior years.

This year's PROMISE Scholars are: Abigail Miller, Dakota Valley High School; Emily Miller, Aberdeen Central High School; John Schmidt, Lake Preston High School; William Trevillyan, Brandon Valley High School; and Rebecca VandeBraak, Washington High School.

The Science Educator Research Fellowship provides area educators by supporting health research performed by middle and high school teachers with a focus on pediatrics. During the summer, participants conduct independent community-based research and then are instructed in how to best translate their finding into lessons in the classroom.

The educators chosen in 2014 are: Kay Bass, Harrisburg High School; Cathryn Camey, Boyden-Hull High School; Darwin Daugaard, Dell Rapids High School; Darren DeNeui, Platte-Geddes Middle/High School; Jeff Peterson, West Central High School; Marie Gillespie, Pierre Indian Learning Center.
