Melissa Dean, daughter of Dave and Mary Dean of Linn Grove and a freshman at Sioux Central High School, has been selected by the University of Iowa to participate in an Environmental Health Sciences Institute this summer. She is one of only 16 students across the state chosen.
Dean will take part in a variety of learning activities including didactic, small group discussion, laboratory and field exercises. The instructors are nationally recognized faculty, researchers and staff from the Environmental Health Sciences Research Center. The one-week residential program will award Dean a scholarship.
