McCracken Students Pursue Passions at Summer Camps
By WestKyStar & MCHS Staff
PADUCAH - McCracken County High School senior Abby Kuntz and sophomore Brooke Bowling will both leave home this summer to pursue their passions at prestigious summer camps out-of-state.

Kuntz will attend the Brown University Pre-College Summer Program in Providence, RI where she’ll explore possible medical career paths.
For the past three years in McCracken’s Project Lead the Way Biomedical Science program, Kuntz has developed an interest in the medical field, but she’s unsure whether she will prefer a career as a doctor or as a researcher. She hopes the summer program at Brown will help her decide. Her classes during the intensive, weeklong program will include Behind the Breakthroughs: Using Laboratory Organisms in Biomedical Research, and Hands-on Medicine: A Week in the Life of a Medical Student.

Bowling will attend the American Musical and Dramatic Dance Academy (AMDA) High School Summer Conservatory in New York City, NY where she’ll hone her thespian skills under the instruction of seasoned Broadway and film performers.

Bowling rediscovered her passion for music and theater this year, first as a Castle Dancer in Market House Theatre’s fall production of Beauty and the Beast and now as a Newsie in McCracken’s spring production of Disney’s Newsies. She hopes her time in NY this summer will help her decide if she sees herself there for college in two years.
