On March 11, ACE Mentor Greater Boston held a small celebration for our 31 high school seniors at Wentworth Institute of Technology, awarding $152,000 in college scholarships help them pursue careers in the field. The event was a stripped-down version of our normal final Student Showcase, due to precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Most of our mentors were asked to stay home, and we missed the chance to give our best wishes in person, with a hearty handshake. Instead, elbows were bumped, and a few mentors representing the discipline and site leads gave congratulations on behalf of all of us. Students did not get to deliver their final presentations, but they did get the chance to say a few words, if desired, to describe their experience in the program. Students, you will go off to college with our best wishes. Please keep in touch with ACE and follow our Linked In company page to learn about upcoming alumni events.
