Guests at the Shot-at-a-Million Golf Classic 19th Hole After-Party last month had the opportunity to meet two standout high school seniors, Emily and Connor, who have achieved tremendous academic success with the help of Hathaway-Sycamores Family Resource Centers’ after-school learning center. The good news keeps on coming for students at Hathaway-Sycamores Family Resource Center. George Vasquez has been admitted to UC Berkeley with a full ride scholarship and another FRC student, Elisha Marquez, won a highly coveted internship at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

The FRC Learnning Center has been trying for three years to place a student into the prestigious Jet Propulsion Laboratory Summer High School Internship Program, JPL SpaceSHIP. Elisha a junior at Eagle Rock High School and a student at the FRC Learning Center, is our first success.

JPL SpaceSHIP is an eight week internship with a $3,000 stipend designed for high school students, age 16 or older, who have demonstrated a strong interest in and aptitude for science, technology, engineering and/or mathematics (STEM). One of JPL SpaceSHIP’s objectives is to encourage pre-college students who have been traditionally underrepresented in STEM fields to consider such fields for their careers. Students participating in JPL SpaceSHIP are provided an opportunity to do introductory research, work in a technical environment, and expand their computer skills under the guidance of NASA’s science, engineering, and technical professionals.
