Harris Foundation and Intel host STEAM event for McClymond's Scholars
On Wednesday, December 7, 2016, the Harris Foundation and Intel joined forces to host an incredible and empowering event for McClymonds to inspire Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM) careers. Ms. Hailey King, Student Body President kicked off the event with the Harris Foundation and introduced two aspiring Computer Scientists, Freshmen Ariana Bell and Nyrae Burleson-Goodman. Both Ariana and Nyrae shared their future pathways of becoming Computer Engineers and Scientists.
Highlights also included McClymond's future engineers, seniors De'Shaun Neabeack-Brantley, Quaylin Wesley, J'Mya Gray-Martinez, Parrish Kendricks, Jorge Abundis and Garyon'Tae Smith sharing their experiences in the Intel mentorship program. Dr. Harris, the first African American to walk in space, presented his story of becoming an astronaut for NASA and how determination and hard work can fulfill dreams of a lifetime. The Harris Foundation in partnership with McClymonds HS will begin afterschool STEAM programming for interested students starting in January.
