CHARLESTON -- Three local high school students attended the annual West Virginia Governor's School for Mathematics and Science this summer. The two-week-long, all-expenses-paid, residential science honors program, held at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory in Green Bank, utilized the field of radio astronomy to educate and encourage students to further explore careers in STEM fields.

Sean Adkins of Hamlin, Lincoln County; and Jonathon Anderson-Cain and Adam Cordingley, both of Huntington, were among 57 rising ninth-grade scholars who participated summer school.

Students were selected based on their leadership abilities, superior academic proficiency in science and math and a willingness to explore various topics with peers from around the state.
