A Franklin County High School student is about to get a glimpse of what her future would be like if she pursues her dream to become a doctor.

Cayce Daniels, who will be a sophomore this fall, is headed to Emory University in Atlanta Sunday for a 10-day participation in the National Youth Leadership Forum on Medicine.

She’ll be staying at a dorm at Emory as she embarks on a hands-on, interactive curriculum that includes shadowing practicing physicians, clinical site visits at the nation’s top medical centers and meeting and interacting with faculty from world-renowned medical institutions.

Daniels, 15, the daughter of Jesse and Jennifer Daniels of Carrabelle, is an honor roll student, active in the Tigers program at the Carrabelle branch library, and a member of the Franklin County band for four years.

Jennifer Daniels said her daughter, who has dreams of becoming a radiologist, was nominated for the program after an aptitude test at the school showed she has an interest in and an aptitude for medicine.

Tuition for the program runs close to $2,700, but with the help of family and friends, Daneils was able to make things work.
