STEM Student Success Stories
Robin DeFleice, Technology, STEM Intern
I took my first IT class in 2011 I started with a basic Microsoft Office class, and the next semester I took Web Design I. I went onto complete an Introduction to Programming and Logic and Java Programming. This spring semester 2013, I was enrolled in WordPress, Photoshop, Managing and Developing Websites and Flash I.
During one of my lab sessions I overheard a little bit about the Internship Program for IT students. After getting prepared for interviews with Cristina Lawson, I got my first interview and got hired to work with a team of other STEM Intern students. Our internship position, was to revise and manage the STEM website and make it user friendly.
I am honored to have been a part of the STEM Internship program, and it has inspired me to continue with my education. My success in this program goes to Ms. Adrienne Thompson, Stem Center Coordinator, Ms. Cristina Lawson, Outreach Coordinator, Manasseh Lee, IT Instructor, Don Bittinger, IT Instructor, Bonnie Zhang, IT Instructor, and the students on the web management team.
