Civil engineering student wins STEM Forward scholarship

Charlanique Hueneke, an undergraduate in civil engineering, has won one of four scholarships awarded by STEM Forward to area college students.

STEM Forward, a Milwaukee non-profit advancing STEM workforce through STEM education and programming, awards the scholarships each year. Each recipient has demonstrated academic success in a STEM field, and substantial involvement in extracurricular activities and organizations.

In her video, Hueneke, a non-traditional student, describes her educational journey.

“Coming to the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee has literally changed my life, my outlook, and the trajectory of my future,” she said. “Reentering college was the best choice I could have made for myself.”
