“After high school I plan to attend DigiPen Institute of Technology for 4 years and acquire the Bachelor of Science in Computer Science. From there, I hope to work for a major tech company.”
Each year, the Aberdeen Rotary Club honors Aberdeen High School Seniors through the Student of the Month recognition and scholarship program. One senior is recognized each month between October and May. In June, two of these eight students are then selected for either the $1000 “Blue” or $2000 “Gold” scholarship to the school of their choice.
