On March 7, middle and high school girls gathered at NSU to interact with distinguished women in science, technology, math, and engineering fields and learn more about their future career opportunities in science fields. Their keynote speaker this year was Stephanie Arnie from Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom, a Pierre native who shared all about her experiences in STEM careers around the globe.
Stephanie encouraged her audience to never give up in achieving their career goals and to try a little bit of everything. “Failure builds character,” she said. “Try, try, try, and always do your research.” // — Becca Simon
