Olivia Kline, Camdenton High School senior, was selected as a national scholar for the Science Talent Search (STS).  This search, sponsored by Regeneron, is the nation’s oldest and most prestigious science and math competition for high school seniors and awards students like Kline $2,000 in cash.  
This is the first-ever Camdenton student to be given this award. Kline was selected as a result of her first-ever development of a perpetual cell line developed from bumblebees. This cell line will be instrumental in determining effects of pesticides and diseases on this quickly diminishing pollinator for agricultural crops.
From among this elite group of students that were named as STS scholars, 40 finalists will be selected Jan. 23 to attend the national talent institute in Washington, D.C. for a chance to win, among a total of $1.8 million in awards, an individual $250,000 cash award.
