Nia Lowery, a local high school rising senior, received her certificate yesterday for completing an Army-sponsored program through Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute (HEMI). Nia’s already strong programming skills helped her to make great strides on a challenging project to create a reaction mechanism database. Nia plans to apply to universities as a BME major where she hopes to help create innovative prosthetics for the disabled. With her work ethic and academic talent, she is sure to succeed. Good luck, Nia.
