Terek Davis Been

Terek Davis Been, a 2016 Carson High School graduate, was recently awarded a $1,500 scholarship from Sierra Nevada Ear, Nose & Throat (SNENT). Been, who plans on attending the University of Toronto in the fall, earned the scholarship with an essay about why he’s interested in studying science. He gives much of that credit to his teachers at Carson High School, who he says nurtured his passion.

Been will study biochemistry with plans to go into pathology or onto medical school after completing his under-grad work. He says the scholarship is good for him for many reasons.

SNENT’s Dr. Paul Manoukian and Dr. K. Brian Romaneschi have awarded more than $33,000 in scholarships over the past 11 years to local high school seniors pursuing advanced education in healthcare.
