Pace grad Vanessa Perez-Robles honored for grant
Miami-Dade County Commission chairwoman Audrey M. Edmonson recognized Monsignor Edward Pace high school recent graduate student and Miami Lakes resident Vanessa Perez-Robles, who received Amazon’s Future Engineer Scholarship.
She was among 100 winners nationwide as part of the tech giant’s push to promote education and careers in computer science.
Perez-Robles was awarded a scholarship of up to $10,000 to study computer science at the college of her choice. She will enroll at Dartmouth in the fall of 2019.
Launched last November, Amazon Future Engineer is taking the childhood-to-career approach to inspire and educate children and young adults. It’s part of Amazon’s $50 million investment in computer science/STEM education. The company has donated more than $10 million to organizations that promote such programs across the country.
