Donations made to the EE/ECE Alumni Society funds support our students like Jenna Mossing:
“I studied Electrical and Computer Engineering at Ohio State, focusing on Circuits. After graduating, I started working full time at United Launch Alliance in Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida. I work as a Systems Test Engineer with the ground electrical and software team for both Atlas V and Delta IV rocket programs. I’m also in training to be a console operator for launches on both rockets. My first mission on console was the NASA/ESA Solar Orbitor Probe launch on an Atlas V rocket in February.
The Shaffstall Scholarship was very helpful in getting my dream job working in the rocket industry. With a scholarship that took my mind off paying for school, I was able to focus on my classes and extracurricular activities. I co-founded a STEM Outreach volunteer organization and was vice president of IEEE while I was at Ohio State, and this heavy involvement outside of classes wouldn’t have been possible if I was also working. Since I was only focused on school, my resume was boosted by increased GPA and extracurriculars that led me to get a job where I’m helping explore space and improve national security. I’m very thankful for the Shaffstall Scholarship, and those that helped contribute to it.”
As you are considering any end of the year donations or new ways to pay forward in 2021, please think of supporting our Ohio resident students, out-of-state students, or graduate students.
