District Five students shine at South Carolina Junior Science and Humanities Symposium

Six students in programs at the Center for Advanced Technical Studies (The Center) earned numerous awards in the 51st Annual South Carolina Junior Science and Humanities Symposium (JSHS) held at the University of South Carolina campus.

Clean Energy student Caleb Clark and Biomedical student Doonya Khan were both selected for National Semifinalist awards. Other Clean Energy students receiving recognition for their research were: J’Den O’Neal and Daisy Walsh who received 1st place awards for their research and Branner Umberger received a 3rd place award.

Clean Energy instructor Patrick Smallwood said, “I’m extremely proud of how well our Center students performed at this competition with some of the most prestigious schools and research programs in our state.”

JSHS invites high school students to report on the results of their original research investigations in STEM and compete for scholarships and recognition at university-held regional symposia. Students in grades 9-12 enrolled in public, private, or home schools are eligible to participate in their local Regional Symposium.
