Pam donates to help FIRST build a better future.

pam-alumni-appeal-eoy19

Pam is a FIRST® alum from FIRST® Robotics Competition Team 1257 “Parallel Universe” in Scotch Plains, NJ. After high school, she earned a degree in psychology with an education minor and now leads a team of analysts and researchers as Director of Performance Metrics and Research at the NYC Department of Education. Her FIRST experience not only inspired her career path in the education sector but also her desire to volunteer and donate to FIRST to help the next generation gain access to life-changing inspiration and community.

"FIRST demonstrated to me how life-changing educational access and experiential learning can be to a student’s trajectory and how it can set the next generation up for success,” Pam said. “Initially I started volunteering to stay connected to the FIRST community and to pay my own experience as a student forward. The longer that I have volunteered, the more important the mission of FIRST, and therefore supporting it financially, has become to me. I’ve come to understand the variety of ways that FIRST is having an impact on students’ trajectories and how important it is to give back."
