HARDIN, Mont. - A Hardin fourth grader is headed to the National Youth Leadership Forum in Denver after being nominated by a teacher.
Ten-year-old Vernon Hugs will be learning about medicine, crime scene investigation and engineering while at the forum. It's planned for July 11-15 in Denver, Colorado.
"He loves science.," said Hardin Intermediate School Teacher Lori Flory. "He's an all-around excellent student."
Vernon confirmed that his favorite subject in school is science. He particularly loves dinosaurs, especially the Apatosaurus and Theropods.
"I do like dinosaurs," he said. "I know a lot of them, even ones that a lot of people don't know."
