Taos High student wins national computing award

The National Center for Women & Information Technology selects recipients of Aspirations in Computing awards

Posted

Each year, United States high school women in grades 9 through 12 are eligible to receive recognition for their demonstrated interest and achievements in computing, proven leadership ability, academic performance and plans for post-secondary education.

Jenay Barela, a Taos High School Junior, was one of the 41 national award winners selected from more than 3,600 amazing, talented young women this year.

Barela participates in BotBall, Business Professionals of America and the Los Alamos Supercomputing Challenge. She works various community events, such as the Invent Event and summer camps offered through Twirl. She is also fortunate to have the opportunity to work and learn through Taos Net. Barela plans to pursue a degree in computer science when she graduates in 2019 from Taos High School.

Bank of America sponsors the awards. Each of the 41 national award winners received prizes, cash and a trip to Bank of America headquarters in March for a celebration and networking with Bank of America employees.
