Emily Leight, an East Greenville native and industrial engineering student at Penn State, has been awarded the $2,500 Southworth International Group Honor Scholarship, writes Pamela Krewson Wertz for Penn State News.

Leight keeps herself busy both in the classroom and the community. She is a member of the industrial engineering honor society Alpha Pi Mu and was recently elected as the society’s president for the incoming academic year.

Among her other activities, she participates in Women in Engineering Program as a facilitated study group leader for the physics course and volunteers at the group’s Girl Scouts Saturdays. During these events, Penn State students help local elementary and middle school students learn about engineering and other STEM fields.

“Receiving this scholarship at the close of my junior year at Penn State is very exciting news to top off a great semester,” said Leight. “I am extremely honored to receive this scholarship, and see it as a testimony to the passion I have for this field of study.”
