"Paisley is a bright, articulate, and courageous young lady and student at Hurricane High School. She is a vocal champion for increased female participation in STEM courses at her school. She cares deeply about education and has worked tirelessly to get more resources into classrooms not just at HHS, but to schools across Putnam County. "

My advice to middle schoolers would be to always be kind to people (students and faculty), no matter what, and to avoid drama! Instead, focus your energy on organization, good grades, being involved in school, and extracurricular activities that make you happy. Remember you are smart, beautiful, and hard-working, because those qualities will get you through the next three years!
"I'm currently the only female enrolled in our aerospace engineering course. A unique 4-year pilot program, this course brings high-level STEM knowledge to Appalachian classrooms in West Virginia. However, we have nearly 1300 people in my entire school! Why am I the only female in this course? I want to work to empower young women to explore science, technology, engineering, and math."
Her academic work has been matched by a devotion to making the community better. She is currently enrolled in the aviation studies course at HHS. She is working with education and community leaders to build a better classroom experience for herself and for those who will take the course in the future.
