The National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists chose Perez to be a Louisiana representative at its symposium held at UMass Lowell, just outside of Boston, MA.   

The Congress gathers many of the country’s finest high school students who aspire to enter careers in the medical field and singles them out for special recognition and ongoing mentorship by some of the greatest minds in medicine.

Perez was introduced to top medical school deans, award-winning inventors and scientists, heard from Nobel Prize laureates and was exposed to cutting edge medicine.

Dario Cosic from Parkway; Shannon Mathers from Airline; and Cameron Thomas from Benton were among the 16,000 students in the nation recognized for their outstanding academic achievements. To put it in perspective, more than 1.6 million students apply each year for the National Merit Scholarship Program.

Mathers is currently ranked number one in her class and involved in a number of school clubs and extracurricular activities. She is the Vice President of Airline’s Debate team and has won numerous awards at debate competitions. 

Thomas is also number one in his class at Benton, where he is the squad leader in Band; a member of the National Honor Society; and medalist in chemistry at Literary Rally. 

Cosic, Mathers and Thomas are now in contention as National Merit Scholar Finalists, with the National Merit Scholarship being the most prestigious honor bestowed on high school seniors.
