■ Eric Evans, a 2011 graduate of Boyle County High School in Danville, was selected to represent Kentucky as a delegate to the National Youth Science Camp from June 30 to July 24 at Charleston, W.Va. Evans joined 116 other top science students from across the nation and the world for the honors science leadership program.
Scientists from various disciplines presented lectures and led directed studies. This year's topics included: global warming, genomic medicine, radio astronomy and energy sustainability. Delegates had the opportunity to dissect a human hand, discuss bioethics, explore forensic science techniques and search through the DNA sequence of a genetic disease.
■ As part of its end-of-camp performance and cookout, the Lafayette High School Marching Band will host the Lafayette Grand Band Reunion on Friday at Ishmael Stadium, 401 Reed Lane. The cookout begins at 5:30 p.m., and the performance is at 7. Dinner is $6.
