PASCO, Wash. - A freshman at Columbia Basic College is headed to Washington, D.C. after being awarded the North American Young Generation in Nuclear Scholarship.

"I'm so excited to represent CBC and the [Nuclear Technology program]. It's just an outstanding program and I can't wait to spread the word...it's going to be great," said Calaway.

Calaway is studying to be a nuclear technician. She leaves for D.C. in May.
