Taylor also was awarded distinctions such as an AP scholar with honor and a Ron Brown Captain. Her latest accomplishment is participating in the Summer Research Early Identification Program within the Stanford University chemistry department as an intern. Taylor plans on pursuing a Ph.D. in chemical engineering or chemical synthesis and entering the beauty industry to produce skin and hair care products.


North Carolina A&T State University

Jared Brown currently is a sophomore honor student at the illustrious North Carolina Agriculture and Technical State University. So far in his mechanical engineering curriculum he has taken engineering design and ethics, material sciences, and graphics for mechanical engineering, which is a class that teaches an AutoCAD software and solidworks. He is from Waldorf, Maryland where he graduated on a scholar’s course of study in 2019 from Thomas Stone High School as magna cum laude graduate. He also participated in the Project Lead The Way (PLTW) engineering program, a nationally recognized educational course that taught students the basics of many engineering disciplines and practices ranging from civil engineering and architecture to electrical engineering. Completing his degree will allow him to invent and innovate more tools, devices and designs that he truly believes will improve our lives for tomorrow.
