$20,000 Women in Technology scholarship for South Forsyth High student

According to the National Science Foundation, America lags behind other nations in the number of students majoring in science and engineering. For over 20 years, Women in Technology (WIT), an Atlanta-based organization, has been striving to progress the role of women in the tech industry and to better STEM education opportunities for girls. WIT Girls collaborates with the Georgia business community to support and inspire girls in middle and high school. Shwetha Mudalegundi, a South Forsyth High School student, is the latest recipient of the WIT Girls $20,000 scholarship.

Shwetha’s work in STEM already runs deep as she has won honors at the Georgia State Science and Engineering Fair and the state and national Junior Science and Humanities Symposiums. Her research paper “Assessment of the Role of Different Imaging Modalities with Emphasis on FDG PET/CT in the Management of Well Differentiated Thyroid Cancer (WDTC)” has been published in the Journal of Thyroid Disorders and Therapy, and she presented her research at a cancer conference.

Shwetha plans to attend the University of Miami on a full scholarship, as a pre-med majoring in neuroscience. An MD/PhD may be in her future.
