Barnes will attend the national science and humanities symposium in Orlando, Florida from April 30 to May 4.
Berkeley Springs High School science teacher Elizabeth Ramsey was presented the West Virginia JSHS Teacher Award. Ramsey and the school were given $500 to support science programs. Winning teachers are selected based on past and present support for student research.
