Brianna Hensley's a semifinalist in naming Mars Rover!

OHHS sophomore Brianna Hensley has been named a semifinalist in the national 'Name NASA's Mars 2020 Rover' challenge. Her entry -- 'Prospect' -- was chosen out of all Ohio entries. Brianna now moves on to compete for one of 9 finalist spots, to be announced Jan. 21. The public will be invited to vote at that time -- check back here and on OHLSD social media to see if Brianna is in the finals!

Here's an excerpt from Brianna's winning essay: "The Prospect of finding life, or even just building the foundation for a new civilization, gives us purpose. The name Prospect encapsulates all of this and more by showing what humans can do when you let them be creative and shoot for the stars." 

We love that, Brianna!
