Three Chatham High School students won Aspirations in Computing Awards through the National Center for Women in Technology: Amira Mouline, Catarina DeMatos and Margaret Harrigan.

The awards were presented at a Kean University awards dinner on April 5.

DeMatos, a senior, plans to attend New Jersey Institute of Technology as a Computer Science major next year. She said, “At NJIT, I hope to take on many internships in the city and continue to learn more about robotics by joining a robotics team. After college, I see myself working for a technology or engineering company, as well as creating my own tech startup company.”

Harrigan, a senior, plans to attend Wellesley College to study either Applied Math, Economics, or Computer Science.

CHS technology teachers John Hajdu and Julianna Ryan nominated these students for this recognition.

“It is wonderful to see our female students being recognized for their leadership roles in STEM fields, paving the way for future generations,” Hajdu said.
