This year there are three seniors who are receiving the Certificate in Data-Driven Change: David Feng, Kevin Huynh, and Lindsey Turner. David has used mathematical modeling to support arguments in English and web software in support of a not-for-profit organization. Kevin has also used mathematical modeling to predict changes in the trucking industry while estimating personal stress for people as a function of their living environments. Lindsey has used innovative software to address robotics challenges, to support our Westtown weekend residential life program, and to build community at Westtown during this pandemic through creative, artistic, and unique systems. All of the presentations by the students dramatically capture the wide range of interests and intellectual work they have pursued. All of us can learn from David, Kevin, and Lindsey as they share their highlights and learnings in Data-Driven Change.
The Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Social Justice Deep Dive is a learning experience where students are able to deepen their understanding and knowledge of DEI topics and their importance in today’s world. These presentations reflect the course work, campus involvement, experiences beyond the classroom and students own interests and queries. We hope you will be inspired and learn from Jadyn Williams, Odessa Kiliru-Liontree, and Jocie Resnik as they share the highlights and learnings of their Deep Dives with you.
This Certificate recognizes scholars who have studied and worked to become an agent for stewardship and positive social change in the world. They have developed the ability to integrate entrepreneurism and critical social inquiry as a foundational creative force for designing change, and will proceed with a mindset and skill sets to be stewards of a better world. The past two years saw many changes in the way people think about and create action for social change and the cohesion and support of community. Sam Hu has worked across a diverse range of entrepreneurship endeavors, both in class and in programs afield, to deeply understand the challenges of people and develop solutions to help them become agentic in their own work. We hope you will be inspired and learn from Sam as he shares the highlights and learnings of his Deep Dive with you.
The Global Leadership Certificate seeks to prepare scholars who successfully engage in the intellectual and action-based pursuit of language acquisition and cultural understanding as imperatives to becoming a global citizen. The Global Leadership Certificate recognizes students who have pursued an interdisciplinary program at Westtown School that focuses on the application of language acquisition and the acquisition of a panoramic cultural acumen. The end result will be an authentic and action-based experience that approaches global issues through linguistic and cultural perspectives as a way to attain cultural exchange, social justice, and stewardship of a global society. We hope you will be inspired and learn from Kavi Gandhi, Stephanie Hanchak, Bini Lee, and Mia Melendez-Ruiz as they share the highlights and learnings of their Deep Dives with you.
The Sustainability Deep Dive is a learning experience where students are able to deepen their understanding and knowledge of sustainability and the importance of restorative practices in today's world. These presentations reflect the course work, campus involvement, experiences beyond the classroom, and student passions and interests. I hope you will be inspired and learn from Dorian Brotschul, Tanner Cogswell, Christine Hao, Ella Johnson, and Tobias Zuckerberg as they share the highlights and learnings of their Deep Dives with you.
