Summer Ventures - Chevonne Parker

Cary High was proudly represented by Chevonne Parker at the 2015 Summer Ventures at East Carolina University.  At ECU, there were 80 students participating in 6 areas of research.  Chevonne was one of 10 who participated in the bio-medical research at Brody School of Medicine, ECU.  At the completion of the research projects, the best paper was nominated from each of the 6 areas.  Chevonne successfully completed her research project on "Trichloroethylene and T-Cell Infiltration in the Cerebellum" .  Her paper was the best out of her group, which was then nominated to receive the "Catalyst Award".  Chevonne did an excellent job presenting her research project to a panel of professors who then selected the ultimate winner.  We are very proud that Chevonne was the finalist out of her group.  We say congratulations to Chevonne!  This is a reflection of the great job that teachers at Cary High School are doing.
