SPOTLIGHT ON JUNIORS - Trent Meyers and His Glowing Fascination
Figuratively speaking, some of us “glow” about our rockhounding interests, whether they involve gems, minerals, fossils, field trips, prospecting, or lapidary arts.
Jim Brace-Thompson

But Trent Meyers has an interest that literally glows! Trent is a 15-year-old member of the Central Pennsylvania Rock & Mineral Club (CPRMC), a club for which his mother, Carrie, has served as president. Trent attends both junior and adult meetings whenever he can. With Carrie also serving as their club delegate to the Eastern Federation of Mineralogical & Lapidary Societies (EFMLS), Trent has tagged along to the last three EFMLS shows and conventions also.

At the convention, where he is often the only junior in attendance, he has shown unusual interest and maturity for a young teen. As an example, being starstruck for Trent very likely included the thrill of meeting legendary Rock & Gem’s Senior Consulting Editor Bob Jones at an EFMLS show in Bristol, Connecticut.
