We did award 2 scholarships at the Michigan Tech MSE Department Banquet on Thursday, April 19th. Scholarships were presented by DWAFS Education Chair Kathy Hayrynen. Erin Heidelberger received the Warchol Scholarship while Katherine Russell received the Kobel Scholarship.
Here is a testimonial from Erin:
“Being involved in AFS activities at Michigan Tech has provided me with opportunities to learn about and work in the metalcasting industry, while also having fun. It means a lot to me and my fellow students that AFS continues to support us and our education. Beyond the financial assistance that scholarships provide, they also showcase the great community in AFS, and it is encouraging to know that our hard work is being recognized. I am very grateful for all the work that AFS does, and for their continued support.”
“I wanted to say thank you very much for the Kobel Scholarship. I am truly grateful for this opportunity to continue my education and not have to worry about how I will pay for schooling as much. With you help and kindness, I have been able to pursue my passion of being a materials science engineer and show other women how wonderful the STEM field is. Again, thank you to all the members of the Detroit-Windsor AFS and its donors.”
