My name is Kana Wong and I’ll be graduating from Beloit Memorial High School this June. Throughout high school I’ve been involved in National Honor Society, Student Senate, Future Business Leaders of America, and Key Club. I’ve been a part of the boys swim team for the past four years, and have also participated in volleyball, track, and soccer for Beloit Memorial.
This past year I’ve tried to stay busy through work and volunteering for NHS. I also decided to join some new programs in my spare time, one of which was the Stadium Project through CareerTEK. In the program we interviewed engineers, architects, and foremen who were working on the new ABC Supply Stadium, and learned how to edit those interviews into short videos. It was a really fun project, and I’ve been able to use the video editing skills that I learned there in a couple of my own projects since then.
Next year I’ll be attending UW Madison’s College of Engineering, although I am still undecided in my field. I’m really grateful to have been given this scholarship, and for all of the opportunities CareerTEK has provided me with this past year.
