Reed Campbell has been selected to attend the Honeywell Leadership Challenge Academy (HLCA) at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama.

Campbell, a senior at Lincoln County High School, was one of only about 320 students in 33 U.S. states and almost 40 countries chosen to participate in the week-long, experimental learning program exclusive to students 16-18 years old.

The HLCA program is designed for students who have an interest in science, technology, engineering or mathematics and are actively pursuing careers in the field.

The program introduces students to the legacy of the American Space Program and concentrates on addressing current issues within the science and technology community.

During the academy, the students, working in small groups, will be presented with “Challenges” and encouraged to explore problem-solving scenarios using hands-on science, mathematics, and engineering skills. Many of the activities at HLCA will require students to present their findings or opinions to a panel of experts in the field.

HLCA participants learn teamwork and communication in ways that are not easily replicated in the formal classroom. By participating in the program, students learn how to work through scientific problems through incremental tests and experiments.

Reed is the son of David and Jennifer Campbell.
