On Wednesday, June 1st, six Paschen Engineering Scholars celebrated their graduation from the program at the annual Hard Hat Ceremony. It was the fourth group of CPS George Westinghouse College Prep students to graduate from the program. In addition to the senior class graduation, five freshmen from Westinghouse College Prep will be introduced as the latest class of Paschen Engineering Scholars.
The Paschen Engineering Scholars Program curriculum includes hands-on activities to develop technical skills, building problem-solving abilities, and gaining real-world work experience to improve the scholars’ knowledge of and access to career opportunities in the STEM and construction fields.
“It’s always tough to say goodbye to the Seniors, but we’re so excited to see where they are a year from now, and ten years from now. We expect to hear their names associated with great things in the future, and we can’t wait to get our next group of new Paschen scholars started in the program.”
The six graduates were accepted into the schools of their choice and will begin their post-secondary education in the Fall. Additionally, the graduates will receive an $800 Amazon gift card for books and technology, $200 worth of college essentials, and a graduation tassel and charm.
Congratulations to the Class of 2022 and a big welcome to the Class of 2025!
