On June 17, 2010 during the General membership meeting at the Hilton at Biltmore Park acting as the Chair of the Professional Women in Building Council, I was pleased to present the 2010 PWB Scholarship Award to Monica Whitmire. Monica is a senior at Enka High School and will be attending the University of North Carolina Charlotte to major in Architecture and minor in Art to become a licensed Architect. Monica’s specific career goal is to obtain a Master’s Degree in Architecture while working to obtain additional certificates. Monica states that “my biggest focus on residential design is to incorporate environmentally friendly aspects into every house, just because something is green doesn’t mean it has to look it.” Monica’s application exemplifies her leadership capabilities, work ethics and community involvement through volunteering with several organizations. Monica’s academic scores and grades are very impressive as well as the several letters of recommendation stating “Monica is so intelligent and focused on her future; she is a great student and an amazing young woman”. Congratulations Monica Whitmire!
