July 23, 2014 

Kate Loman, of Lee’s Summit, is one of more than 400 students nationwide selected to participate in this summer’s Joseph Baldwin Academy for Eminent Young Scholars at Truman State University.

Loman will be in ninth grade at Lee’s Summit North High School this fall.

The academy enriches the learning process of young gifted and talented students by challenging them with a college curriculum. It is split into three-week sessions and the scholars are offered on class from a list of courses taught by a member of Truman’s faculty. Loman took biomusicology.

The scholars are nominated by their school’s principal or counselor and selected on basis of their application, school transcript, and test scores in the top five percent on either the ACT, ACT, PSAT.
