Profile:

Lillian is passionate about math and science, spending time studying and developing experiments that help her learn more about how the world works. This summer, she has the chance to participate in the West Virginia Governor’s School for Math and Science program. Wheeling's Good Zoo is close to her home, and because she already spends so much time there watching and learning about the animals and various conservation efforts, she recently decided to volunteer as a docent. Now she can share her knowledge with visitors and help with the zoo's summer camps and programs. For the past two years, Lillian has been taking Latin lessons with a private teacher. These studies have instilled in her a desire to travel to Italy to see all the ancient Roman ruins and learn more about the culture. Lillian previously competed in the 2013 Scripps National Spelling Bee.
