scholarship recipient

I am currently a senior within the AEM department. Being in the AEM department has challenged and pushed me to develop the skills necessary to enter the engineering field and upon graduating this spring I hope to obtain a job in the aerospace engineering field where I can have an impact on our exploration of space and the universe. My favorite memory from my time in the AEM department was competing in the CanSat competition in Texas. Getting ready for the competition included a lot of hard work, but it was satisfying to see all of that work pay off.
