Saturday evening, June 29, will bring the big announcement of who will be the Distinguished Young Woman of America for 2013.

Hochstetler graduated from Northridge High School this spring. She plans to attend Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis this fall to study in the biology and pre-medical programs with a focus in neuroscience. She plans to attend medical school and then teach and do research at the college level.

Hochstetler is the daughter of Rhonda and Nathan Hochstetler.

Maui County voters will decide in the next few weeks whether to ban the cultivation of genetically engineered organisms, at least temporarily. A “yes” vote on the Nov. 4 ballot initiative would require large multinational companies that research new varieties of corn and soybeans in Maui to stop farming until they are able to prove their methods are safe. This could upend global agriculture giant Monsanto’s research pipeline for new varieties of corn and soybeans. (AP Photo/The Maui News, Matthew Thayer)
