National Leadership Academy
In June, Dylan Thomas represented David Crockett High School and the State of Tennessee at the Congress of Future Medical Leaders in Boston, Massachusetts. He was awarded the Award of Excellence, certifying his successful completion of the Congress.
Dylan was surrounded by many fellow high school students who share his passion, ability and potential. So many Delegates found new friends to help them reach their dreams and future colleagues to collaborate with.
He watched live surgery and Many Delegates had a chance to question the surgeon in real time.
