Walton High School student Evan Cowie has been selected as Walton County's top 11th grade student in the area of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) to be honored at the 2016 Sunshine State Scholars Program.
The Sunshine State Scholars program was founded in 1997 by Dr. William Caldwell of the University of North Florida and brought together top STEM students from throughout the state to celebrate their successes. Sunshine State Scholars recognizes the academic achievements of the top 11th grade students representing every district in Florida. The scholars, along with their parents and a teacher selected by each scholar, convene with more than 40 of Florida's colleges and universities to learn about postsecondary STEM programs of study and unique career opportunities.
Evan was also the winner of the 2014-15 State of Florida Science Fair. Congratulations Evan!
