RRHS student Alexa Chavez was awarded the keys to a unique, seven-week summer research opportunity at UArizona.

The goal of the program is to provide Arizona high school students with the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to pursue their personal and professional goals. 

She was selected from more than 260 competitive applicants who were judged on the strength of their personal statement, teacher recommendations and high school transcript. Top-scoring candidates then
interviewed with KEYS staff.  After the rigorous application and interview process, 50 students representing 24 high
schools across the state were selected to be a part of the 2020 program.
