Sophomore participates in The Perry Initiative

Congratulations to sophomore Abby Brooks for being selected to participate in the Perry Initiative at Tulane Medical School in March. Abby was selected after completing an application, sending in her GPA and coursework, and submitting an essay. She was one of only 3 sophomores in the 40 member group which included female high school students from across the New Orleans area. Throughout the day, Abby learned how to suture as well as drill through bones!
