Senior Chandler Kelleher Attends Congress of Future Science and Technology Leaders

Senior Chandler Kelleher had the opportunity to not only represent Catholic High School, but also the state of Louisiana at the Congress of Future Science and Technology Leaders in Boston, Massachusetts.

While in Boston, Kelleher was taught by some of the greatest living minds and prodigies in science and technology. Leaders included: David Wineland, Ph.D., winner of the 2012 Nobel Prize in Physics and the 2007 National Medal of Science; Dean Kamen, recipient of the National Medal of Technology and Innovation and inventor of the Segway; and Jacob Barnett, the youngest person admitted to the Perimeter Scholars International Masterí´s Program and the worldí´s youngest astrophysics researcher.

The theme of the Congress was íÍGreatness Awaits,íñ and it offered students an opportunity to be mentored by some of the most important leaders of our time.

Kelleher was presented an official Award of Excellence for his completion of the Congress by CHS Principal Lisa Harvey. íÍI am so gratified by Chandlerí´s participation in the Congress.  He has represented Catholic High proudly by using his talents and interests to be a part of such an impressive program,íñ said Harvey.
