Gila Ridge A-Team member selected for Congress of Future Medical Leaders

Gila Ridge High School student Cassell Wiggins has been selected to represent Yuma Union High School District and the state of Arizona at the Congress of Future Medical Leaders in Boston, Massachusetts from June 23-25, 2019.

Wiggins recently received an Official Award of Excellence, certifying his invitation to this prestigious event.

Wiggins is a perennial member of the Gila Ridge ‘A-Team’ for his superb grades each semester and is a three sport varsity athlete as he plays football, basketball, and track and field for the Hawks.

According to their website, the Congress of Future Medical Leaders was created by the National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists to help solve this problem by gathering many of the country’s finest high school students who aspire to careers in medicine and singling them out for special recognition and ongoing mentorship.
