Elaina 'Ellie' Owens, a rising Cocke County High School junior, will attend the National Youth Leadership Forum on Medicine at the University of Southern California Berkeley the week of July 7.

Ellie is the daughter of Dr. Denise Webb and Kurt Owens.

Ellie's selection to attend this year's forum was based on her exemplary academic achievement, leadership potential, and her interest in medicine.

One of a very select group of high school scholars, she will gain valuable insight into the challenges and rewards of a medical career. At the forum, she, along with other delegates, will spend ten days enjoying first-hand experiences, examine state-of-the-art diagnostic tools, and future medical specialties in detail.

For more details, please see the weekend edition of the Newport Plain Talk.
