06.25.2020 — Last night, the ACE Mentor Program of Washington celebrated the conclusion of this year’s program with a virtual reception and scholarship event. The event was hosted by Jon Magnusson, who dubbed himself, jokingly, the "low-key MC" for the night.
Congratulations to all the ACE participants and mentors this year for their perseverance and to the 14 scholarship recipients awarded last night. It certainly was an unusual year where mentors and participants were challenged to complete their final projects and presentations virtually.
Handrae Henthorn was the recipient of a $7,000 scholarship sponsored by MKA and ACE and will attend Seattle Pacific University in the fall to study structural engineering. MKA is a proud Platinum sponsor and has been part of the ACE Mentor Program in Seattle since its inception in 2001. Congratulations to all and best wishes for your bright futures!
