Students from across the nation are nominated to be apart of a medical leaders program. 

"I'm very proud that Emily was nominated and able to attend this is a great opportunity for her," said Bainbridge High School Principal Tommie Howell.

Bainbridge High School student Emily Sullivan is a well rounded student. She's a member of the high school band, a competitive dancer, and has a 4.0 GPA.

But her ultimate goal is to become an anesthesiologist.

"I wanna be the kind of person that makes them feel okay when they're going into surgery to make sure that they stay safe while under the anesthesia," said Bainbridge high school student Emily Sullivan.

America's highest achieving high school students who aspire to be in the medical field are invited to serve as delegates in the Future Medical Leaders program in Lowell Massachusetts.

Emily says she received a letter in the mail last week to be a part of the 3 day program.

"In 8th grade we had to fill something out explaining what we wanted to be when we grew up and I filled out the medical one and they checked the databases,"said Emily. "They found the best grades and they looked at the test scores and that's what got me nominated."

Emily says the most shocking part about receiving the letter is that she didn't apply for the program. 

"My first reaction was kind of funny, I was like oh this is a letter from Harvard I wonder what this could be," said Emily. "I was really surprised I was not expecting that; my mom was like oh my gosh Emily I'm so happy for you baby, I love you, this is amazing!"

But as you can tell she's happy to be a part of the program.

Emily will attend the congress with  students from across the country in Lowell, Massachusetts in June.
