Congratulations to Bachelor of Architecture students Cindy Santamaria, Justyna Drozdz, Peiying Jiang, Vionna Wai, and Wei Ying Zhang, and Master of Architecture student Kathleen Bender!

The WX Scholars Program’s goal is to encourage and support bright and talented young women pursuing careers in real estate and related professions in the New York metropolitan area. Students were selected for this honor for their high academic and design achievement and their potential for success in business. Scholars have access to the WX Mentoring Program, which matches them with WX members as mentors. Throughout the year they will continue to interact with their mentors and attend activities that offer networking opportunities as they enter the workforce.

Master of Landscape Architecture student Robynne Heymans ’18 also received a WX Summer Internship Grant in support of her summer 2017 position with the National Park Service as a landscape architecture intern at Gateway National Recreation Area.
