Madison Ritsch (Class of 2019) was selected as a recipient of the Lockheed Martin STEM scholarship. This scholarship aims to provide support for female students, students of color, and students of other diverse backgrounds in order to pursue their degrees in various STEM fields. Previous PLTW students are given priority consideration as Lockheed Martin has supported and promoted the growth of PLTW classes since 2007. 

Madison is a current aerospace engineering student at CU Boulder. She hopes to be selected for an internship with Lockheed Martin next summer. Currently, her passion and focus is in missiles and air defense. 

She is so honored and thrilled to have been given this award and hopes to make Lockheed Martin, CU Boulder, and Vail Christian High School proud through her studies.
