SHPE at LM Aero Hosts Luncheon for Scholarship Winners

July 24, 2012

The Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE) at LM Aero-FW chapter hosted a luncheon for six very distinguished college-bound students on July 13. The luncheon included presentation of their awards, an overview of Lockheed Martin and SHPE, and concluding with a tour of the F-35 assembly line. The SHPE at LM Aero scholarship program represents gratitude, personal excellence, motivation, integrity, leadership, and community involvement. This award represents the second in the history of the chapter operating as an official tax-exempt organization. The SHPE at LM Aero scholarship program was awarded to the winners based upon strict requirements in academic performance, awards and recognition received, their involvement in the community, and desire to pursue a degree within science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The winners were Miss Alyssa Armendariz, graduate of Euless Trinity High School plans to attend Notre Dame; Miss Jennifer Choi, graduate of Hurst L.D. Bell and plans to attend UT Austin; Mr. Joe Delgado graduate of Fort Worth Arlington Heights and plans to attend Texas Christian University; Miss Emma Ely graduate of Hurst L.D. Bell and plans to attend the Colorado School of Mines; Mr. Matthew Ferguson graduate from Richland High School plans to attend Cornell University; and Mr. Austin Miller graduate from Southlake Carroll High School and plans to attend UT Austin. All graduates plan to major in engineering, science, or mathematics. This year the winning students were awarded $1,000 each that may be applied to tuition, books, and school supplies on behalf of SHPE at LM Aero and Lockheed Martin. The SHPE at LM Aero Scholarship program funds were raised from the annual charity golf tournament held April 2nd at Squaw Creek in Fort Worth. We congratulate all of our scholarship winners and wish them the best of luck as they embark on a new journey in their lives!
