Kelsey Morgan Churchill served as a counselor at Tech Trek in summer of 2013 at the CSU Fresno campus. For this service, she received an unexpected honorarium. Churchill generously donated the funds to American Association of University Women in order that an additional student could be awarded a Lodi Tech Trek Scholarship in 2014.

When asked why she donated the money, she replied, “Tech Trek has had such an important impact on my life, I wanted to share that with another girl.”

Her proud grandmother, Audrey Churchill said, “I tried to convince her to put the money into her college fund, but Kelsey said that Tech Trek opens a whole new world for girls, many of whom have never been away from home before. “

AAUW is very appreciative of her generosity and confident she will succeed in any endeavor. Tech Trek girls will leave for camp in June and one young lady can thank Churchill for her week’s camp experience.

For 2015, 7th grade girls attending Lodi USD middle schools in Lodi and who love math or science are eligible to apply for Tech Trek. The girls should see their counselors in December. Applicants must complete an application form, garner teacher recommendations and participate in an interview. Girls who win camperships are eligible for mentoring from AAUW members until they graduate from high school.

For information about AAUW membership, contact Rhonda Baumgartner at 209-369 0812. The website is aauwlodi.org and the Facebook page is AAUW Lodi Branch.
