Congratulations are in order for a quartet of Mid-Michigan students.

According to Saginaw Valley State University, the four teens are being recognized "as national leaders in empowering their peers to learn math and science."

They are now spending the week with their teachers in Washington, D.C. for the Chief Science Officers International Summit.

Carrollton High students Emily Jaremba and Hudson Holm, along with John Glenn High students Mackenzie Jean-Marcoux and Anthony Oswald, are among a few dozen students from across the world who were invited.

They also the only students in Michigan to be selected for the opportunity.

The teens will meet with some of the nation's leading minds in science, technology, engineering, and math.

“This summit is an invaluable experience for the students who are chief science officers in our region,” said Adrianne Cole, director of STEM at Saginaw Valley State University. “They are meeting with national STEM leaders and lending their voices to STEM policy conversations. They will be able to bring their newfound knowledge back to our region to share it with other chief science officers and with other students at their schools.”

The Chief Science Officers program is sponsored by Saginaw Valley State University through a grant from The Dow Chemical Company Foundation.
