Local students win computing honors

Two Hillsboro High School and one Century High School student are winners of the “Award for Aspirations in Computing” from the Oregon and southwest Washington region of the National Center for Women & Information Technology.

Savannah Loberger, a senior at Hilhi, is an Oregon regional winner for the third time, and was also selected by NCWIT as one of 35 national winners. Her sister, Ashley Loberger, also of Hilhi, won a regional award, as did Cristina Martinez of Century High School.

The awards honor high school girls for their achievements in computing.

Savannah is the sole student on the Oregon Statewide STEM Taskforce. She developed an all-girls day camp focused on STEM activities called Girls Get IT! She plan to major in engineering in college.

Ashley Loberger, a sophomore, aspires to be an aeronautical engineer. She’s involved in FIRST Lego League robotics and is a part of NASA’s online learning community.

Martinez, a senior, is the president of the Software Entrepreneurs Club at Century. She plans to study nuclear engineering.

Student councils win national awards

Student councils at Century and Liberty high schools have been named National Gold Councils of Excellence by the National Association of Student Councils — two of just three high schools in the state of Oregon to receive the designation. 

The awards provide national recognition for student councils that maintain strong year-round programs that improve school climate by encouraging and involving students to have a voice in school and community affairs.

This is the seventh consecutive year (out of the eight years the award has been offered) that Century’s student council has earned gold status.
