Breck Students Awarded MN Aspirations in Computing Recognition
Three Breck students were among 44 young women to be recognized by the Minnesota Aspirations in Computing Awards Committee earlier this week.
Elizabeth Berman '20 and Samantha Detor '20 were both awarded Certificates of Distinction. Caroline Pirtle '22 received the Rising Star award.
According to their website, the National Center for Women and Information Technology (NCWIT) selected 24 Certificate of Distinction Honorees whose scores were relatively strong, as evidenced by their engagement in a variety of technology and leadership experiences offered in their high school and community.
The Minnesota Aspirations committee also selected 20 Rising Star Honorees who demonstrated engagement in a mixture of technology education and leadership experiences, showing strong promise to be successful pursuing a technology education and career path.
Congratulations to Emre Adabag, Margaret Broyles, Andrew Cheng, James Clinton, Samantha Detor, Gunnar Evenstad, Ekemini Jones, Grace Medeiros, Sam Schoenecker, Dylan Vincent, and Niels Wu, who were named National Merit Semifinalists by the College Board.
Beth Gaffga returns to Breck as our new Middle School English Teacher.
