We’re kicking off the month of May with a new weekly feature: Wonderful Women of West Virginia!


The West Virginia Department of Education and West Virginia Public Broadcasting have partnered together to produce a series entitled “The Future is You!”. This series was created to inspire students age 12-16 to pursue non-traditional CTE pathways that lead to successful careers. AST’s CEO, Arria Hines had the chance to advocate, promote and discuss girls in STEM Careers with our first feature, Emily Calandrelli! Through this interview, Arria discussed exciting occupations in technology and engineering and how to find ways to ensure young girls are finding pathways to these careers!
