Northeastern Maryland Technology Council (NMTC) Presents the 2019 “Bravura Women in STEM Scholarships”, totaling $20,000

Four qualifying young Marylander’s were honored with $5,000 STEM scholarships, March 12, at Bravura Information Technology Systems (Bravura)) head quarter’s location, Aberdeen, MD

A select group of Marylanders received the prestigious Bravura Women in STEM scholarship on March 12, 2019, by standing out, among 30 other applicants, maintaining a high GPA, presenting a history of STEM related activities that demonstrated a true commitment to the pursuit of a STEM college track, supported by  a written essay describing why the scholarship is important to applicant.

This scholarship was established through the generosity of Ms Claudine Adams, president and Founder of Bravura, to recognize outstanding full-time female high school seniors pursuing a STEM career in college, who achieved positive academic records and demonstrated extra-curricular activities in the pursuit of their chosen STEM field.

The Scholarships are open to all female STEM high school seniors in Harford and Cecil Counties and to family members of NMTC.  They are awarded based on their meeting the criteria of the Bravura/NMTC scholarship selection committee.

Thirteen Marylander’s honored at February 28, 2019 Ceremony, at the Richlin Ballroom, Edgewood

Havre d Grace, MD ― A select group of Marylanders received the prestigious Visionary Award on February 28, 2019, for their contributions in building our STEM educated workforce, and advancing technology and innovation to grow our economy and protect national security. The ceremony is the largest of its kind in Maryland, held at the Richlin Ballroom in Edgewood, MD, and now in its eight year. It was attended by almost 200 leaders in industry, government, and education.

“We honor remarkable people who continue to play key roles in moving our region forward in the areas of STEM education and technology,” said NMTC Board Chair, Michael Janus and VP/GM Battelle. “These are individuals who selflessly donate their time and talents to make a difference in our community.”

Highlights of the night were the unique use of trading cards of each honoree (and the two keynote speakers) that encouraged networking by having trade cards to get a complete set – the winner awarded $100 by the creator of both these cards and the STEM Illustrated yearbook, Marco Ciavolino of enktesis.com.

STEMIllustratedCover v01 Medium 1An additional highlight is the much looked forward to tradition of our keynote speakers be the students themselves and why this awards celebration exists. This year we had what we called ‘Bookends’; two students with one representing their beginning journey in STEM and the other well on their way to a career in STEM.

They are:

Lila Dobry is a 7th grade student at Perry Hall Middle School. Outside of school, Lila helps design and build robots as a member of a FIRST Tech Challenge team that is heading to the Maryland State Championships. This past year, Lila was very excited to get her first paid programming job with Empower Mats, helping write sample programs in a new programming language to help blind and visually impaired students participate in FIRST Lego League. She is not sure yet which direction she wants to focus on; but is currently excited about the “Intro to Biomedical Sciences” camp this summer.

Sarah Patrick is a first-year student at the University of Maryland – College Park studying Information Science. She graduated from the Science and Mathematics Academy at Aberdeen High School this past May Sarah also completed an internship with the Project Management Institute (PMI) where she built a speaker database using SharePoint, PowerApps, Forms, and Flow for their annual events. She is currently speaking about her experience with the applications at various technical conferences such as SharePoint Saturday and Philly Code Camp.
