Stem Panel

In celebration of National STEM day, we were thrilled to welcomed back several alumnae in STEM fields. We had four impressive women on the panel:

  • Laura Linville ‘06, Chief Resident of Internal Medicine at George Washington University Hospital
  • Madeline McCormick ’11, Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing Trades Manager at Whiting-Turner Contracting 
  • Jillian Perry ‘19, Junior at UMBC, majoring in Biology and minoring in Economics as part of a pre-med track and in the Meyerhoff Scholar program
  • Toni Rodriguez Roberts ‘92, Special Assistant in the FBI IT Infrastructure Division

The SR Connects programming is continuing to thrive as we hosted this very successful Alumnae in STEM panel and an SR Connects: Alumnae Industry Roundtable for Alumnae in STEM. In partnership with Joanna Caudle, Upper School Science Teacher and Chair of the Science Department, we were honored to host Laura ‘06, Madeline '11, Jillian '19 and Toni '92 to talk to Upper School students interested in STEM. The alumnae talked about the importance of being flexible and open to possibilities, taking classes that encourage problem solving and creative thinking in and outside of STEM, continuing to build your “Wall of Fame” (honoring your accomplishments) and letting your career evolve.

The panel was followed by informal roundtable discussions with alumnae, STEM Council members, and students in the STEM certificate program. Our students had the opportunity to learn even more about all of the possibilities in the field of STEM. Many thanks to our panelists and roundtable group:
