Noteworthy: Bethel Park High School senior Adam Larson received the Best Feature Writing in Pennsylvania award from the Pennsylvania School Press Association for his story, “From the Desk of Dr. J: Is There a Crackdown on Social Media?” published in the school's online student newspaper, Hawk Eye.

Hobbies/interests: An Eagle Scout and National Honor Society member, Larson also writes and edits for Hawk Eye, works as a junior reporter for Shale Academy, an energy education program, and attends Ruthfred Lutheran Church, where he teaches religious education classes to fifth graders.

Quote: “I've always been inclined toward science and math, but I love writing, too. With the huge boom in shale gas in Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Ohio, I feel like studying petroleum engineering will be the best fit for me, either at Penn State or Marietta College. Working for Shale Academy definitely solidified that goal for me. I could always minor in journalism.”
