A Claremore student could be the one to name the Mars 2020 rover.

Caden Fox made it to the semifinals for the contest. Fox's name will now go to the next round of consideration.

The name he chose is Cherokee, and it translates to "traveler hello adventurer."

Fox says it pays homage to his heritage and Oklahoma's rich Native American history.
