The Academy for Lifetime Learning announced the winners of the 2018 Betty Ross STEMM Scholarships at its annual reception on June 20. The winners are Kanijah Brickhouse from Northampton High School, Hayley Marshall from Northampton High School and Stephanie Rasinski from Arcadia High School. All three graduates will be attending the University of Virginia in the fall.
This scholarship has been named the Betty Ross Academy for Lifetime Learning STEMM Scholarship in honor of the founder of The Academy for Lifetime Learning who passed away in 2014. The $1,000 scholarships are for students intending to study in the fields of science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine (which includes nursing) because graduates of STEMM fields have a special potential to address the most important issues facing our society. We feel these three young women will be a part of the future success of America.
