Over the last 10 years, WISE has recognized outstanding young women graduating from Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools with plans to pursue college studies in STEM. Our 2015 recipient is Jada Walters, a soon to be graduate of Providence High School.
Jada and her parents were invited to attend the Charlotte CIO Forum where she was recognized and receive the $2,500 scholarship. Along with the scholarship, Jada was surprised with a Lenovo laptop and Microsoft Office package.
Selection criteria included GPA, essay, student awards, activities, and a finalist interview, along with a passion for pursuing a career in STEM. Jada’s essay will highlight some of the reasons she was selected as the 2015 recipient. You can read Jada’s essay here: 2015 WISE Girl Essays – Walters Jada.
