From a Everett Public Schools news release.

The Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association Educational Foundation (AFCEA) selected STEM teacher, Brielle Kemis, as a winner of the AFCEA STEM Teacher Scholarship and awarded her with a check for $1,000.

This program provides a $1,000 grant to winners of the AFCEA Teacher Scholarship who have earned their degree and are teaching a STEM subject in a U.S. middle or high school.

The AFCEA Educational Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to providing educational incentives, opportunities and assistance for people engaged in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines focused on information technology, cybersecurity, telecommunications and electronics supporting the defense, homeland security and intelligence communities.

Kemis also earned a $1,000 AFCEA STEM Teaching Tools grant last year.

This year is the second out of three years she will receive a $1,000 check because she is teaching a STEM subject.

Kemis can use these grants to fund hardware and software, other classroom tools, field trips, STEM-focused clubs and other activities aligned with student learning.
