Rachel Hannaford, MOE FRC alumni and past team webmaster, cheery as ever, volunteered at the Conrad School of Sciences FLL competition in Wilmington last Saturday where her dad Peter Hannaford, along with Beth Blohm, coordinate and host the popular annual event. While Rachel served as referee and behind the scenes organizer—both jobs were easy fits since she is currently working as an AmeriCorp VISTA member with the regional FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) robotics program in Gainesville, Florida.
The 2016 winner of the John A. Larock, Sr. Memorial Scholarship is James Garcia. MOE FRC (FIRST ROBOTICS Challenge) team leader, John Larock said, “His demonstration of hard work and Gracious Professionalism was outstanding, so much so that he became the go-to student on the programming team and was an important member in our mentor-selected pit crew.”
