Trojan Academy students receive white coats

GLASGOW — Forty-seven Trojan Academy freshman were honored for their completion of the Barren County High School’s Principles of Biomedical Sciences course at the White Coat Ceremony on Wednesday night.

This is the first white coat ceremony for the newly implemented BCHS biomedical sciences program, which was made possible last year by a Project Lead the Way grant.

Trojan Academy Principal Amy Bryant Allen said the students receiving their white coats symbolizes their hard work, dedication and commitment to the medical field.

For the future generation to be competitive in the world, Allen said students will need to develop critical thinking skills that are emphasized in the biomedical program.

“(In the Principles of Biomedical Sciences course) students learn how to research, determine reliable and credible sources, problem solve and communicate effectively,” she said.

The students conducted rigorous course work to receive their white coats entailing them to learn about a variety of different diseases, human medicine, bioinformatics and health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes and sickle cell anemia.

At the beginning of the class, students were given a hypothetical scenario where their neighbor had died, and through their research and medical knowledge, students had to determine how the individual died.
