Evan Hooper, Madison Reeley, and Patrick Stalnaker were notified on April 21 about their acceptance at the National Cancer Institute (NCI) as a paid interns. 

Before receiving the acceptance email from the institute, the three had a rigorous application process. This included an essay which covered a brief overview of what they hoped to learn from the internship along with transcripts and two teacher recommendations.

“I was very surprised when I got my internship, and I really appreciate the opportunity to work for a doctor in a field that I am interested in,” Hooper said. His time at NCI will consist of making experiments and learning how to take samples for biochemical and biophysical analysis.

Reeley will be a part of the “dry” lab, working in public relations. Her responsibilities include researching, analyzing and reporting which will take place in a lab at the NCI’s headquarters in Frederick. “I plan on going into the medical field so, from this experience I hope to get some insight before I actually enter,” she said.

Stalnaker will be managing the part of the NCI network and computers. He said, “It felt amazing to have gotten the e-mail, but I’m also nervous about how my plans will turn out for the summer.”

Before they begin working as interns, they will have to go attend a safety training meeting during school hours. The internship will throughout the summer and the 2017-2018 school year.
