Joe Van Nausdle

Cedarcrest grad at National Youth Science Camp

   Joe Van Nausdle, a 1999 graduate of Cedarcrest High School, was selected to represent Washington at the National Youth Science Camp in West Virginia this summer. He joined 104 delegates coming from all fifty states and five foreign countries for the prestigious four-week program.

   Eminent scientists from all disciplines travel to the camp to offer lectures, directed studies and seminars. Van Nausdle said his directed study in the area of biology "reinforced [his] desire to pursue medicine."

   Van Nausdle plans to study engineering and pre-medicine at the University of Southern California this fall.
