Student Caught Selling Candy Bars to Attend STEM Program


A 6th grade student with a goal of being an orthodontist was nominated by her math teacher for the National Youth Leadership Forum in Dallas, Texas. Coffeyville Elementary student, Lizandra Ortega, was seen by her teacher, Karlas Moore, selling candy bars to raise the money to attend the STEM program, so Moore found Lizandra a $500 scholarship.


Lizandra said she was inspired by Mrs. Moore's class and is now a math and science buff. Thanks to Moore, she will be at the National Youth Leadership Forum held July 6th through the 11th at the University of Texas-Dallas.
