Platteview High School student Breanna Terry received the 2013 Nebraska NCWIT Award for Aspirations in Computing at a recognition ceremony at UNO’s Peter Kiewit Institute this month. The award, sponsored by Microsoft, Motorola Solutions Foundation, and the National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT), recognizes young high school women for their computing-related achievements and interests as part of an effort to encourage more young women to choose careers in technology.
A total of eight award-winners and four runners up were selected from high schools across the Nebraska for their outstanding aptitude and interest in information technology and computing, solid leadership ability, good academic history, and plans for post-secondary education.
“Platteview High School is proud that one of its own students received this prestigious award,” Counselor John Stanton commented about Breanna’s recognition. “It reflects well on her family, school and community. Breanna has taken advantage of technology academy opportunities at UNO and will continue IT pursuits at UNO in the fall.”
