What: Young Women’s Preparatory Network STEM Challenge sponsor party

Where: Tod’s boutique in NorthPark Center

PC Moment: Ahead of the Girls Innovate: YWPN Stem Challenge, Tod’s hosted a festive party to thank its sponsors for their support: NEC, NorthPark Center, PaperCity, Comerica Bank, Texas Instruments, Fluor, Microsoft, and Westwood Trust.

Along with YWPN CEO Lynn McBee, several high school girls who are Young Women’s Preparatory Network students were in attendance to mingle with McBee, their mentor, and other families and friends of the YWPN. The Stem Challenge ultimately featured projects they’d been working on all semester — along with adult mentors — to solve “real-life” STEM challenges.

STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) is the core focus for the YWPN, which has a network of schools including Irma Rangel in Dallas, Fort Worth’s Young Women’s Leadership Academy, and Young Women’s College Preparatory Academy in Houston.

WhoLynn and Allan McBee, Katie Albritton, Suzanne Droese, Mark and Patty Leyendecker, Karla StackSally Posey, Maria JonhstonMargaret and Lester Keliher, and Jeff Hopkins.
