MHS Students Win National Award for ComputingMason High School students Keerthi Sekar, Jenny Wan, and Annie Wang were selected as 2018 National Honorable Mention (NHM) recipients of the NCWIT Award for Aspirations in Computing.

"I have had the honor and pleasure of having Keerthi, Jenny and Annie in my class for multiple semesters," explained MHS Computer Programming, Math and Networking teacher
Greg Kummer. "They are all very good students and computer scientists."

There were more than 3,600 applications for the 2018 Aspirations Award, and only 350 NHMs were selected.

"All three girls use CS as a tool to further their development in their other passions," added Kummer. "Whether those are in the realms of promoting computer science like Annie in Hack Club and Hackathon or Jenny in TEDx/INTERalliance, or robotics like Keerthi in First/Quantum Leap. They all take advantage of any opportunity to learn and make themselves and others better."

NCWIT Aspirations in Computing (AiC) provides a long-term community for female technologists, from K-12 through higher education and beyond, encouraging persistence in computing through continuous engagement and ongoing encouragement at each pivotal stage of their educational and professional development.
