The Morro Bay Chapter of the American Association of University Women has awarded $1,000 scholarships to two recent graduates of Morro Bay High School.
Ellis Fryer will attend Cal Poly and major in architectural engineering. In the fourth grade, fascinated by empty cereal boxes, Ellis created her first building project, a replica of the town of Los Osos. She hopes to pursue environmentally-friendly building design.
Juliana Ruef will attend UC Berkeley and major in biomedical engineering. She is interested in prosthetics, introduced to this subject by her sister and by attending a Cal Poly day camp hosted by the Society of Women Engineers (SWE). A longtime student of Spanish, she wants to combine this skill with biomedical engineering to serve the Hispanic population either here or abroad. She plans to become a nurse.
