North Tama sixth grade student Holly Rigel, daughter of Matt and Deb Rigel, and North Tama eighth grade student, Jordyn TeBeest, daughter of Tom and Angi TeBeest, were selected as the recipients for the 2012 Space Camp Scholarships. The scholarships provide unique and exciting opportunites for these two students to attend Space Camp, a week long educational camp, in Huntsville, Alabama. Students will be engaged in activities related to science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Students will work on team building and will also gain leadership skills from these opportunities. Space Camp inspires students to take leadership roles in their lives, to pursue academic excellence, and the camp also broadens students' awareness of careers available globally.
