Spotlight on Education: Local Couples' Granddaughter Receives Prestigious Recognition


BRADENTON – Emily Chandler, granddaughter of Bradenton's Miriam and Lynn Workley and Chuck and Charlotte Chandler, has been chosen for the Congress of Future Medical Leaders in Washington, D.C. The Congress is an honors-only program for high school students who want to become physicians or go into medical research fields. 

Chandler, a Junior at Grafton High School in West Virginia, traveled to Washington, DC, this past weekend to participate. She was nominated to represent West Virginia by Dr. Connie Mariano, the Medical Director or the National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists, based on her “academic achievement, leaderships potential and determination to serve humanity in the field of medicine.”

The congress works to honor, inspire, motivate and direct the top students in the country who aspire to be doctors and medical scientists, so that they may stay true to their dream, and afterward, provides a path, plan and other resources to help them meet their goals.
