Bolingbrook High School sophomore James Morrissette
was one of only
300 students from around the world chosen to attend the Honeywell Leadership Challenge Academy.
Morrissette attended the academy at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama, better known as “Space Camp,” according to a news release from Valley View School District 365U.
The program is designed for children of Honeywell employees to heighten their interest in science, technology, engineering and math, as well as to prepare them for the university experience.
In a district video, Morrissette talked about his experience and what he wants to do with his career in the future.
“My aspirations were reinforced because I do want to be an entrepreneur focusing on Earth [and] space sciences, something like that,” Morrissette said.
