Ms. DiVentura sent the thank you below:
It is an honor to be awarded the William Davidson Memorial Scholarship by the South Jersey Mechanical Contractors Association. My name is Julianna DiVentura, I am a senior at Mainland Regional High School in Linwood, New Jersey. I will be continuing my education at Rowan University where I will major in Mechanical Engineering and I hope to become certified in Aerospace Engineering as well. Service and giving back to my community has always been a big part of my life, just like Mr. Davidson exemplified his whole life.
I was an altar server at Our Lady of Sorrows Church for ten years and recently I became a Eucharistic Minister. In the summer of 2018 I traveled to Costa Rica to complete a two week service project with students from my school. During this trip I learned so much about myself and the true beauty of the Spanish culture. Being able to give back to my community and other communities has been such a wonderful experience. I am honored to represent the William Davidson Memorial Scholarship of 2020 and I hope to be an inspiration for females interested in a male-dominated career such as engineering.
Thank you so much!! Julianna
In the words of her school counselor, “Julianna challenged herself with many honors and Advanced Placement courses. She sought knowledge in areas that piqued her interest rather than simply to enhance her transcript … She is an excellent student who knows how to prioritize and succeed … Engineering is her goal, and she possesses the self-discipline, resourcefulness, and drive to accomplish that goal.”
SJMCA extends our congratulations and best wishes for continued success to Julianna.
