Half a dozen Bunker Hill Community College students have been recognized for their school work in science and engineering.
The Society of Latino Engineers and Scientists recognized six of the college’s students for their academic achievements at an awards ceremony last month.
The students--Alejandra Marin, Lewis Taveras, Ana Keough, Hudson Gloria, Kamila Souza, and Luis Rodrigues--were honored along with students from MIT, Harvard University, Tufts University, Suffolk University, Boston University, Northeastern University and the University of Massachusetts Lowell.
The students will receive mentorship and advocacy through graduate school and while they find careers through the Society of Latino Engineers and Scientists, which is the Boston chapter of MAES, a national organization founded to promote and recognize education and leadership among Latino engineers and scientists.
Engineering majors Gloria, Keough and Souza, all engineering majors, and Rodrigues, a biology major, plan to transfer to four year institutions in the fall. Marin and Taveras, engineering majors, are set to graduate in May 2013.
