For our tour of the US Capitol, one of our parent chaperones, Mr. Atkinson, set up a meeting with Congressman Robert Pittenger. Upon our arrival, we were greeted by staff members from our office who were going to give us a personal tour of the building and that Rep. Pittenger was going to meet us in the Rotunda, say hello and get a picture of our group.
Emily Kirby, the sponsor of the CMS Girls Who Code club, had this to say; "I have been involved in girl's STEM clubs for most of my early academic career, going to Engineering Clubs while at my all-girls high school, and holding a board member positions in the Society of Women Engineers during my four years in college. I was inspired to facilitate Girls Who Code as a way to give back, for I know I wouldn't be where I am today without having women engineering role models and supporters. Currently, I support Microsoft Teams, the future of collaboration services at Microsoft. Before beginning my career at Microsoft, I studied Industrial Engineering at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst."
