Boeing Arizona STEM Signing Day
Celebrating Future STEM Leaders
Students From Around the State Honored for Commitment to Pursuing STEM Careers
Just like college signing days for athletes, the second annual Arizona STEM Signing Day celebrated outstanding high school seniors from around the state as they made their commitments to education programs focusing on science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Boeing held the event on June 11 to recognize 30 students, as these future leaders of STEM signed letters of intent to pursue a two- or four-year degree in a STEM field after high school.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, this traditionally in-person ceremony was instead held as a virtual event streamed live on Zoom. This year’s Arizona STEM Signing Day, presented by Boeing in partnership with Arizona Science Center and SciTech Institute, featured personal videos and photos from each of the 30 selected students signing their letters of intent, and included a keynote address from Arizona Governor Doug Ducey, Regent Taylor Robson, as well as speakers from Boeing.
“Boeing hosts STEM Signing Day events to demonstrate our commitment to STEM education and the future workforce of our communities across the country. We were proud to partner with the Arizona Science Center and SciTech Institute to honor these remarkable young people who plan to pursue degrees and careers in these important fields. The future is bright for these promising young minds, so we’re certain they will achieve great success in their studies and experience many accomplishments in life,” said Leann Shaffer, Boeing Community Investor.
