SWE-Charlottte Metrolina Wins Region D Outreach MOU Partnership Award

The Charlotte Metrolina Section of SWE won the Region D Outreach MOU Partnership Award during the awards banquet on Friday April 1 at the Region Conference.  The award recognizes one Professional and one Collegiate Section that has an outstanding program targeted for the outreach organizations that SWE has a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with: FIRST, Girls Incorporated, and Girl Scouts of the USA. The Outreach MOU Partnership Award is not limited to a one-time only activity.

The award application was submitted based on the Engineers are Epic! event with the Hornets Nest Girl Scout Council.  The events are held in the fall and spring (Engineers Week) to provide hands on experiences for Girl Scouts in the different engineering fields.

Angela Berry has organized these events over the past 13 years.  She recruits volunteers for each event and provides support to each session leader so they can learn the activity and teach the Girl Scouts about the area of engineering.   All the volunteers for this have brought about this award win for the Section!  Thanks to all those involved.
