Scholarship info!

Hi Robotics Team & Parents – FIRST just posted some of the 2014 scholarships. The earliest deadlines for applying so far are December and January. Most are for Seniors but there are a couple for Juniors as well. Also, there’s an information session in Hartford on October 24 at 7 p.m. for RIT (where our illustrious alum, Alan Welch, attends). If any Seniors are interested in car-pooling, let me know. – Shelley 860-542-1657

Eli-OfficerPresident: Eli

I am currently a senior at Northwestern Regional High School. This is my second year as president of NRG 4055. I enjoy working on things that are unrelated to the robot itself and don’t mind the outreach aspect of FIRST. Balancing school and robotics is quite hard when robotics can take over more time than anything else I do. Though looking forward I’m unsure about what I want to do once I’m out of high school. I intend to go to college for management and hope I have a stable career in this recession.
YOYO-THIS-IS-ME-fixed-225x300Vice-President: Matthew
I am a sophomore this year at Northwestern. I am the new vice president of FRC team NRG 4055. I look forward to the coming year and in assisting the team in as many ways as possible, be it organizing events or helping with community outreach. I was on the programming sub-team this year, and would like to remain involved with it for the next 3 years of high school. I would also like to take a further step into the electrical components and building of the robot. I want to help the team as much as possible and hopefully live up to expectations in the absence of our president.
Meredith-officerTreasurer: Meredith
I am currently a senior in high school. This is my third year in the Northwestern robotics program and first year as treasurer. This year alone I have raised $6,500 for NRG through various grants. As a member of the electrical team as well, I now truly understand the importance of zip ties, duct tape, and heat shrinks. These and other life lessons have influenced my interest in science and technology and changed my life. I never would have been involved in those fields without the FIRST program. I am appreciative to the many mentors and fellow teammates that have helped me along the way and continue to do so.
Megan-officerPublic Relations and Fundraising : Megan
I am currently a senior at Northwestern High School. This is my second year on NRG as well as my second year as head of Public Relations. I am extremely appreciative of the FIRST program, which has allowed me to explore many aspects of science and technology, and has opened a variety of doors for me. While in college, I plan to major in Nuclear Engineering and minor in mathematics. I later plan to pursue a career in nuclear engineering.

I am currently a sophomore at Northwestern High School. I have been interested in the sciences ever since I first learned about them, and this has greatly influenced my career decisions. Through the Robotics program, I have grown to appreciate the technological aspects as much as the scientific aspects of the world. I am grateful to everyone here for encouraging me to take an active part in all the proceedings, and to learn as much as possible! I have done and will continue to do my best to live up to the team’s expectations, and am proud to be part of this team.
