Each year, DENSO Manufacturing Michigan, Inc. (DMMI) awards college scholarships to two outstanding Battle Creek Math and Science Center students for academic and personal achievement. The 2018 recipients are Diana Dalski and Autumn Acker.
Diana Dalski plans to attend Michigan State University in the fall, majoring in Computer Engineering with a specialty in Biomedicine. Diana was captain of the Robotics Club at her school, helping reinforce her love for math and science. Diana’s goal is to identify unsolved challenges and make a difference in other’s lives.
Recipient Autumn Acker will attend Western Michigan University in the fall to pursue a Biomedicine degree. Through volunteering at Bronson Battle Creek Hospital, Diana discovered a passion for the medical field. Her goal is to go into neonatology to help ensure the health and wellness of infants.
Brenda Dredge, HVAC Operations Director, presented the scholarships.
“DENSO’s vision for the year 2030 is bringing hope for the future for our planet, society and all people. That is a lofty vision, and to get there, we need people with strong math, science and engineering skills who can think creatively about new technologies and who have a strong desire to make a difference in their companies and their communities.
“We are fortunate to have the Battle Creek Area Math and Science Center in our community,” Dredge said. “And we are proud to help students as they start their college studies and this next phase of their lives. On behalf of DENSO, I want to congratulate the entire graduating class of 2018 and wish them the best of luck.”
