On January 19, I had the privilege of attending the award ceremony for the National Center for Women and Information Technology’s (NCWIT) Award for Aspirations in Computing.
At the event, 20 high-school women from around the state were honored for their achievements in technology. They were selected for their computing and IT aptitude, leadership ability, academic history, and plans for post-secondary education.
I was completely awestruck at the achievement and drive of these young ladies.
Among these 20 young ladies were:
- National Science Olympiads
- Computer programmers
- Our next generation IT innovators
We have a lot to learn from these young women… The drive, determination, and energy that they approach life with is a model for us all to follow.
