An Islesboro Central School student has been selected from hundreds of applicants nationwide to participate in the Middle School STEM Workshop at the United States Military Academy this spring.

Annika Rogers headed to West Point, N.Y., in late May for the May 29-June 1 workshop.

The annual workshop brings together seventh- and eighth-grade students from across the country who “demonstrate strong interest and skills in science, technology, engineering and math,” according to the acceptance letter Rogers received from the United States Military Academy.

In addition to the STEM Workshop, Rogers will have an opportunity to learn about the West Point tradition. Rogers is the daughter of Rick and Johanna Rogers. Her brother, Cadet Holden Rogers, is currently enrolled at the United States Military Academy, in the class of 2014.

Congratulations to Rogers and her family on this fine opportunity.
