A Columbia teen-ager has been selected to represent Johns Hopkins Children's Center during a national broadcast.

Scott Summe, 16, is one of 50 children from around the country selected as part of the Children's Miracle Network's Champions Across American Program. As part of the program, Scott and his family will visit Washington and Orlando, Fla.

Born with Crouzon syndrome, an inherited condition that causes skull bones to fuse before birth, Scott has undergone 21 surgeries. He speaks at local elementary schools about his condition and recently completed a cross-country race.

The Children's Miracle Network is a nonprofit organization that helps raise money for children's hospitals such as Johns Hopkins Children's Center.

The network's telethon is scheduled to air from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. June 3 on WMAR-TV.
