“Celebration with the STARS”

Part of the Allen School contingent at the 2018 “Celebration with the STARS” banquet: Adilene Pulgarin, Tevin Stanley, faculty member Lauren Bricker, Kieran Hess, Joshua Quichocho, Wen Liu, and Simplicio DeLeon.

The Washington STate Academic RedShirt (STARS) program supports engineering and computer science students from low-income backgrounds and underserved high schools in navigating the transition to college-level engineering courses.

Tonight marked the fifth annual “Celebration with the STARS” banquet, and the graduation from UW of the first cohort of STARS students. 30% of the graduates are Allen School students – and 39% of the newest (fifth) cohort are headed for the Allen School!

Congratulations, STARS!
