A Lafayette Christian Academy student has been nominated to represent the state of Louisiana at the 2014 Congress of Future Medical Leaders in Washington D.C.
Kierany Shelvin, a LCA senior of Lafayette, has been nominated for the Congress which was created by The National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientist to gather the country's finest high school students who aspire to careers in medicine.
Students who attend the Congress meet face-to-face with winners of the Noble Prize; award winning young inventors and scientists; top medical school deans; Ivy League academic leaders; Leaders of medicine, fascinating patients; and medical futurists.
During the Congress, students will view surgery and have an opportunity to submit questions for the surgeon to answer in real time during the procedure. They will learn about state -of-the-art diagnostic tools and be inspired by world changing researchers, futurists and technologists.
Kierany has been a 4.0 student throughout her school career and is the president of BETA at LCA. She plans to acquire an undergraduate degree in Chemistry/Astronomy and become a Neuro-Surgeon. She also intends on pursuing Singing/Songwriting while attending College.Donations are being accepted to help Kierany pay for the cost of attending the Congress in February.
