MUSCLE SHOALS – The National Center for Women and Information Technology recently selected 400 young women from all 50 US States as their 2019 Aspirations in Computing. They were chosen from a pool of 4,300 young women for this award. Recipients were chosen based on their interest and achievements in computing, proven leadership ability, academic performance, and plans for post-secondary education.

Two Muscle Shoals Career Academy Computer Science Students were named among the 400. Jennifer Wade was named the Northern Alabama Winner and Jessica Isbell was named the Northern Alabama Rising Star. These students and their teacher, Tiffany Stonecipher, will be honored at an Awards Ceremony at the University of Alabama in April.
