On May 23rd we recognized 5 young women from the Central New York region who are headed to college for STEM related majors in the coming fall. In addition to our members, we joined by representatives of several of our sponsors, the scholarship recipients, and the recipients families and teachers. The event was held at Carrier, in East Syracuse, NY. Though this was not a record breaking year in regards to sponsorship we still received outstanding support from both long-term and new sponsors- each recipient received $2,250 and the event had it’s largest attendance in several years. It was a lovely evening and we look forward to continuing the tradition in 2023.
We are pleased to share that this year’s keynote speaker was Lauren Livermore, P.E., BCEE.
