Alumna Takes Charge and Works for Change

Alex Jabbarpour
CS alumna Alexandra Jabbarpour (Seminar class of 2014) was featured in a Roanoke Times article on May 18, 2017 for taking the initiative to organize a symposium for technology-inclined girls in middle and high school. Alexandra is currently completing her junior year at Community High School. She recruited area women who have distinguished careers in the STEM fields and asked them to share their stories, brag about their research, and inspire young girls. The symposium took place on May 16 in the Jefferson Center and was attended by 100 local students. Read the full story here.
