Julie Beckwith

Altamont Junior Amrita Lakhanpal was selected as a 2018 National Honorable Mention (NHM) recipient of the National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT) Award for Aspirations in Computing. NCWIT received more than 3,600 applications for this award. Amrita was one of only 350 NHM recipients nationally, and one of only 8 NHM recipients in the state of Alabama. She volunteers with the Girls Who Code Club at Altamont and has taught computer coding classes to students at EPIC Elementary in Birmingham, where she raised enough money to purchase more than 60 Chromebooks for the school.

Congratulations Amrita!
