Katie Huonder considered becoming a doctor but didn't think she could deal with the "blood and guts" that goes with the job.
Enrolling in Erie High School's new engineering program as a sophomore, she found an alternative option, biomedical engineering.
"Instead of being a doctor, I figured I could design the tools," she said.
One of four students who will be the first Erie High engineering program graduates, she's headed to the Colorado School of Mines in the fall to major in mechanical engineering and minor in biomedical engineering.
