The award is based on academic achievement, extracurricular activities, and personal accomplishments and demonstrated leadership in engineering or other technical fields. Each year, through the Golden Torch Awards, NSBE honors individuals, companies, and institutions that have produced a consistent body of highly distinguished work, served as role models for others, and advanced opportunities for African Americans within their industry. The awards ceremony will take place this Spring in Kansas City, MO at the NSBE National Convention.
Additionally, Rachel was awarded an ACM-W fellowship to attend the ACM SIGCSE 2017 conference in Seattle, WA (March 2017).
