Grafton High biomedical science students honored with white coats


Borrowing a tradition in which medical students receive a white lab coat to signal their entrance into the medical profession, Grafton High School and Aurora Medical Center presented white coats to six students who completed and received an A in all four Project Lead the Way biomedical science classes, achieved a three or a four out of a possible four points on end-of-course exams and have a grade-point average of at least 3.7 during a ceremony earlier this month. Gathered on the stage for the presentation of coats were (from left) Project Lead The Way teacher Frances Grant, Carla LaFever and Dr. Hailey Owen of Aurora, students Kaitlin Mangan, Bella Voiland, Jack Wilkins, Todd O’Connor, Lili Hansen and Jordyn Richter, and Dr. Nkem Iroegbu, Sue Meurer and Hailey Nenonon, all of Aurora. The health care provider partners with the school for the program and provided the coats, which are embroidered with the students’ names.               Photo by Sam Arendt
