Each spring, the Hudson’s Bay Branch of American Association of University Women (AAUW) recognizes outstanding junior women for achievement in STEM areas. At a reception at WSU-Vancouver, girls receive certificates in Mathematics, Science, and/or Technology. The keynote speaker is a young woman whose career is in one of those areas. They receive an overview of WSU-Vancouver, and a guide to securing scholarships. Family, teachers, counselors and others are included in the invitations. School counselors and/or principals seek the nominations from teachers, and work with the AAUW to identify and notify the recipients.
The following are the award recipients from La Center High School for this spring:
Megan L. Muffett
