Emily Lauster Awarded AAUW Education Award
This past spring, the AAUW Gaylord Area Branch granted 2021 Gaylord High School graduate Emily Lauster its $1000 Education Award. Emily was a National Honor Society member, an award-winning band member, and active in the Drama Club and Key Club. She has earned the Girl Scout Silver Award. Volunteering in her community, Emily says she has learned “kindness, care, and the importance of making a difference.” Emily will be taking her academic, leadership, creative and volunteering passions to the University of Michigan where she plans to major in psychology.
Kelly Lauster, daughter Emily Lauster and AAUW Gaylord Area Branch Education Committee Member Sheila Simpson celebrate Emily’s award.
Tech Savvy Shifting to Fall 2021
Mark your calendars for the our next Tech Savvy event, tentatively scheduled for Saturday, November 20, 2021.
After several years of hosting a Spring event, Tech Savvy is shifting to the Fall, allowing us to eliminate conflicts with sporting events, enhance involvement of college-age mentors in STEM, and ultimately benefit even more girls in 6th through 9th grade from our local communities. Given uncertainties surrounding the current pandemic and safety of large group gatherings for the Fall of 2020, we’ve decided to schedule our next event for the following year with a tentative date of November 20, 2021. Detailed planning will begin early next year with more information to follow.
In the meantime, visit the Tech Savvy page for a list of online STEM resources for girls.
