At our May online meeting, we recognized high school students in the Edmonds School District for their academic achievement in STEM fields.
Dr. Reitha Weeks was our guest presenter, asking “What Do You Want to Be When You Grow Up?” (Click link to view her 30-minute video) She concluded that the skills, innovation, and creativity of our students will provide critical answers for current and future issues.
Our Scholarship Team is pleased to announce that the winner of our 2020 high school STEM scholarship is Keren Seare. Keren is a senior at Edmonds-Woodway High School, who plans on majoring in computer science at the University of Washington. She is currently an International Baccalaureate candidate who will be a first-generation college student when she enrolls in the fall. Keren is eager to utilize her coding abilities to improve the lives of underrepresented communities.
No in-person branch meetings or events will be held in May. This is for the health and safety of our community, in accordance with state and county guidelines.
