This fall Harker, a 2013 graduate of Fort Atkinson High School, will be a junior at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse where he is majoring in clinical laboratory science. He cited the great variety in laboratory work as well as the positive impact the work could have in helping others as the primary reasons for pursuing an education in this field. Harker expects to receive his degree from UW-La Crosse in 2017 and hopes to find a position working in a lab, hospital or even exploring a career as a forensic scientist.
