On Thursday, May 25th, four Paschen Engineering Scholars celebrated their graduation from the program at the annual Hard Hat Ceremony. It was the fifth group of CPS George Westinghouse College Prep students to graduate from the program. In addition to the senior class graduation, six 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.
“I was very happy about inducting our 8th class of rising sophomores into our program. But I was even more excited about announcing that four of our graduating Paschen Scholars and two other Westinghouse students will be joining us this summer for the Paschen Bridge internship program. Special thanks to all the employees that helped to make this event a success.” Said Executive Vice President, Joe Scarpelli.
The four 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, and $200 worth of college essentials.
Congratulations to the Class of 2023 and a big welcome to the Class of 2026!
