Sabre is pleased to announce that Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology (TJHSST) senior Ivy Ren of Springfield, Va., was awarded a $1,500 college scholarship to Yale University in recognition of her outstanding STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) accomplishments.
Ms. Ren was presented with her award on Wednesday, June 4, 2014, at TJHSST by Sabre senior advisor Paul Korkemaz. According to Korkemaz, “Ivy has demonstrated an exciting passion for science and technology. She has excelled in a very challenging classroom, earned her teachers’ respect, and has been involved in various STEM-related extracurricular activities during her four years at TJHSST. However, her ability to articulate what she hopes to accomplish in math and physics along with her explanation about why the Sabre STEM Scholarship was important to her cinched this award. I predict a very bright future for Ivy as she matriculates to Yale University this fall.”
The Sabre STEM scholarship program was launched in 2013 in an effort help steer students into these curriculum by helping reduce the financial barriers to attend college.
