The Prince William Chamber of Commerce held their annual Education & Innovation Breakfast on April 27 at the historic Bristow Manor Golf Club.
Virginia Secretary of Education Atif Qarni was the Keynote Speaker; he shared his vision and goals for the coming year. Exhibitors showcased their programs and services that support education.
Academic scholarships were awarded to high school seniors who have demonstrated both academic success and a commitment to community involvement. Students were chosen from current employees or dependents of current employees of Prince William Chamber members – just one more benefit of Chamber membership!
This year, scholarships were awarded to Dung Ngo from Manassas Park High School, Madeleine Seputro from Osbourn High School, Lauren Warner from Brentsville District High School, and Megan Hayes from George Mason High School. The scholarships were sponsored by Lockheed Martin-Mission Systems and Training, Amazon Web Services, and Micron Technology, Inc. on behalf of SPARK and BELL Foundations. Briana Sewell from Congressman Gerry Connolly’s Office presented Congressional Records to each of the scholarship recipients.
