Jayden Parris (Engineering, ‘22) was recently awarded the first-ever 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, 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,” Jayden stated. “ 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.”
Congratulations, Jayden, on your achievement!
