An Anniston High School Senior with a GPA of 4.0 and an extreme passion for reading and learning new things is chosen to attend the Congress of Future Medical Leaders in Washington, D.C. Jasmine Rodriguez may have been born in San Diego, California but she is all Anniston Bulldog now. Rodriguez says this is a once in a lifetime opportunity that she’s gained because of her affiliation with the school. She was nominated by Dr. Connie Mariano, the Medical Director of the National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists to represent Alabama based on her academic achievement and student leadership. She will be the lone student representing Calhoun County and surrounding counties. Rodriguez says she’s looking forward to the experience. During the three-day Congress, Jasmine will be joined by students from across the country and hear Nobel Laureates and National Medal of Science Winners talk about leading medical research. Rodriguez says this is a big step toward her ultimate goal of going to U-A-B, majoring in Chemistry with a minor in Business or Marketing, and eventually becoming a physician.
