|Evelyn White * Webster University|
Evelyn White graduated from Harris-Stowe State University, a Historically Black College and University located in St. Louis, Missouri. She is working towards her degree in Management Information Systems (MIS) and plans to pursue her master’s in Cyber Security after graduation.
She recently completed an internship with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) as a virtual intern. White’s internship responsibilities included creating a dashboard for identifying mission critical metrics and isolating instances where the metrics were out of compliance. Which resulted in increased visibility, transparency and usability by both senior leadership and agency’s customers at more than 4,500 locations nationwide and abroad. Evelyn’s internship was provided through the Thurgood Marshall College Scholarship Fund where she is a Leadership Institute participant.
Last summer she was selected to participate in Harris-Stowe State University’s first U.S. Exchange Foundation Chinese Development Program. The program objectives were to provide American students with an opportunity to experience the Chinese language, history, culture and its modern society.
Evelyn is an active campus leader and a member of the National Society of Leadership and Success Organization, a 2014 inductee to the Alpha Chi National College Honor Society, a member of the Vice President’s Academic Honors Society, the Regional Business Council’s Higher Education Collaboration Mentor Network Program, the HBCU Student of Tomorrow China Delegation, a participant in the Annual Cox Automotive HBCU Summit, and a proud member of Harris-Stowe’s Coder’s Club.
This is our first time awarding a scholarship to a college student who plans to study for her graduate degree. Evelyn is a remarkable young woman. BDPA looks forward to following her career as she progresses through her graduate education at Webster University and on into her career!
