Proviso West Students Honored by the Women’s Society of Engineers

Sixteen Proviso West Students were honored and celebrated by the Women’s Society of Engineers for their outstanding achievements in science and mathematics.

The students were recognized and awarded certificates at the April Board of Education Meeting.

“These students represent the best in math and science,” said Proviso West Instructor Robert Hurley. “Each student was recommended by their chemistry, physics, and math teachers as students who are best able to handle the scientific process, and integrate various skills into science.”

The students who were recognized invited teachers to be honored with them. Each student invited their parents and a teacher from their past or present who helped set high standards for achievement.

Proviso West Senior Yessica Reyes invited her 7th grade teacher, Mr. Armando Triana, who now teaches 5th grade at Chicago Public Schools. Reyes credits Triana with giving her confidence and encouraging her to always do things the right way.

“He always helped me with anything that I needed help with,” said Reyes. “He taught me that no matter the obstacles, we have to continue to excel in our studies.”

Several Proviso West teachers were also recognized (by the students) as teachers who truly made a difference for them. Robert Hurley, John Jordan, and Elaine Mass were applauded as Proviso West teachers who set a standard of excellence.

The students and teachers were congratulated by the PTHS 209 Board of Education and Superintendent. Students were also encouraged by 1990 Proviso West Alum and Women’s Society of Engineers Representative Elisa Bonkowski.

"Women are still an underrepresented minority in career fields of science and engineering,” said Bonkowski.  “It is important for us to reach out to the best and brightest and encourage these young women to continue to excel in their studies. It’s also important for us (teachers, parents, and professionals) to introduce them to the
possibilities of careers in science and engineering.”
