Mendocino College's Clark wins Google/MESA scholarship
Ukiah, CA – Mendocino College MESA student Jonny Clark won the Google/MESA scholarship this past October and attended the Nation Society for Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE) conference.
Clark attended the reception in Philadelphia on November 1, where they recognized outstanding computer science and engineering students who have made substantial academic and technical accomplishments. There were 16 scholarships given out in the entire United States and Puerto Rico.
“I wanted to attend the event for the opportunity to meet with the companies and possibly get an internship. I also wanted to check out the workshop that helped to prepare you for your new career in the professional world,” Clark said.
Clark’s goal is to get a bachelors degree in computer science information from Chico State and eventually would like to start as a network technician and then move up to a network administrator.
“I would just like to thank Google and MESA for the opportunity to attend the SHPE conference. I am very excited about my future school and career opportunities. MESA is a great organization just by being a member for the short period of time, I have learned of many programs and scholarships I did not know about before which will help me to succeed in school and my professional career,” Clark said.
