Jayden Parris (Engineering, ‘22) was awarded the first Lockheed Martin STEM scholarship. This $10,000 scholarship was granted on behalf of the Lockheed Martin Corporation, a global aerospace and advanced technologies company. Only 200 winners were chosen from a pool of over 6,300 applicants.
Winners of the highly competitive scholarship were selected based on academic record, strong example of leadership and extracurricular service and achievements. As a freshman in the Vogel School of Engineering, Mr. Parris displayed excellence in all three categories, winning the Outstanding Underclassmen in Engineering Award and running as a member of the Cross Country team.
“The Bryan Vogel School of Engineering is amazing and quite literally state of the art,” said Mr. Parris. "God has blessed the school and students so that they can pay it forward. Engineering students will discover ways to manufacture more efficient engines, creates appendages for amputees, or even [get] clean water to a village in South America… The Vogel School of Engineering takes leaders and teaches them how to engineer the future.”
