YOUR KC STEM ALLIANCE TEAM UPDATE
It takes a village to grow a community steeped in STEM opportunities and KC STEM Alliance is pleased to welcome Chloe Brown as a FIRST/AmeriCorps VISTA member for the Kansas City region. Chloe supports FIRST teams by recruiting mentors and providing technical support, particularly for those in underserved communities. Chloe graduated in May of 2015 with degrees in Evolutionary Health Policy and Health Sciences from Hendrix College in Conway, Arkansas.
As we welcome Chloe, we send off Malcolm Strickland, who is joining FIRST headquarters in New Hampshire in a technical support role. Malcolm joined KC STEM Alliance in 2013 through a partnership with VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America) and FIRST. A 2010 graduate of Lee Summit West High School, Malcolm was a member of FRC Team Titanium. Malcolm is currently a student at Metropolitan Community College-Longview studying computer science.
Callen Fairchild Zind also joins the team this month as a strategic communications consultant. After nearly 14 years as the Director of Marketing & Events at Powell Gardens, Kansas City's botanical garden, Callen looks forward to spreading the word about the many ways Kansas City is building a strong STEM community.
