“SWEET” GESTURE FOR KATY ISD POLICE OFFICERS

As a gesture of support for law enforcement officers, students from the Primrose Schools of Katy came together to express their appreciation for Katy ISD Police Officers in a rather sweet way with freshly made thirst-quenching lemonade. Stands were set up at several of the Primrose Schools of Katy on July 15 to benefit the Katy ISD Police Department.

The students stopped by the Katy ISD Law Enforcement Center during the first week in August to present the department with a check in honor of their valiant work in the community. Officers provided a tour of the police department and explained the core values of the department which are: Integrity First, Service Before Self and Excellence in All. Deputy Chief Robert Meier presented all of the students and teachers with an official Katy ISD challenge coin to thank them for their effort.

TAYLOR HS JUNIOR ATTENDS CONGRESS OF FUTURE SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY LEADERS

Taylor High school junior Katrina Mohindroo was a delegate to the Congress of Future Science and Technology Leaders held in Lowell, Massachusetts from June 29-July 1. Katrina was nominated to represent Texas based on her academic achievement, leadership and interest in science and technology.

Katrina said of the experience, “It was amazing! It exceeded all my expectations. How did they get so many of the very best scientists to speak at one conference?”

The Congress is an honors-only program for high school students who are passionate about science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM). The event’s purpose is to inspire young scientists and to provide the resources to help them reach their goals.

“This is a crucial time in America when we need more nimble-minded and creative scientists and technologists who are even better prepared for a future that is changing exponentially,” said Richard Rossi, Executive Director of the National Academy of Future Scientists and Technologists. “Focused, bright and determined students like Katrina Mohindroo are our future and she deserves all the mentoring and guidance we can give her.”

During the three-day Congress, Katrina joined students from across the country and heard Nobel Laureates, National Medal of Science Winners and technical industry leaders talk about cutting-edge scientific research. Motivational speakers, a super model with the latest generation prosthetic arm, and fellow teen science prodigies inspired them.

One of the most popular speakers did a live demonstration of an actual advanced robot that walked, ran and skipped about the room. Katrina noted, “I had seen the videos of the Boston Dynamics robots, so I really enjoyed getting to see one live. Not only could the robot move around on different flooring and terrain, but it could right itself if it fell over. I started imaging all kinds of uses.”

Katrina is the daughter of Raj and Jolene Mohindroo. She is a member of Kingsland Baptist Church and is an Ambassador Girl Scout. She has received awards in the Houston Livestock and Rodeo Art Competition and is a District medalist for Taylor High School Track and Field.
