Sturgeon Bay High School student, Liam Herbst, earns a full-tuition scholarship to Iowa State University.
The high school senior was awarded the George Washington Carver full tuition scholarship proving outstanding academics and drive. On top of that, Herbst will uniquely be attending Iowa State’s APEX Program this summer. He will take actual classes, get to know the professors/campus, and receive special access. This eight-week program is intensive. In fact, Herbst will be leaving the day after high school graduation.
Hard work was undeniably required in order to attain this feat. This is what Herbst had to say about his efforts.
Liam Herbst has taken AP Chemistry as well as AP Calculus 1, 2, and 3. He currently is working on Ordinary Differential Equations. In addition, Herbst received a 35 on the ACT.
He will major in Chemical Engineering at Iowa State University where he plans to ultimately help others.
