Annual Fellowship Awards Banquet Held

The chapter held its annual Fellowship Awards banquet at the Burlington Marriott Hotel, Massachusetts, in May. John Barrette, board chairman, Educational Foundation, presided as master of ceremonies. Scholarships of $1,000 were awarded to 25 exceptional high school seniors pursuing undergraduate degrees in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines. Nine corporate sponsors (Draper Laboratory, General Dynamics, IPT Associates, Jacobs Engineering, MIT Lincoln Laboratory, The MITRE Corporation, P3I Incorporated, The Raytheon Company and Textron Systems) participated in the Fellowship Awards program by providing each student with paid summer internships, affording them practical STEM experience before entering college. Gilbert A Barrett, III (grandson of the late Gilbert Barrett, founder of the Fellowship Awards program) assisted John Barrette in presenting the Gilbert A. Barrett Award to Michael Woods, East Bridgewater High School. This award carries an additional $1,000 scholarship to the top ranked student amongst the award winners. Guest speaker Dr. Joe Chapa, director of operational analysis and simulation for the Raytheon Company, riveted students with exceptionally motivational comments and practical advice about how to successfully advance in their chosen career paths.
