BALTIMORE - Feb. 3, 2014 - PRLog -- As a response to the nation’s call to action for STEM education, the fourth annual Black Engineer of the Year Awards (BEYA) Stars and Stripes Mentoring Program will be held February 7, 2014 during the BEYA STEM Conference at the Washington Marriot Wardman Park in Washington, DC.

BEYA Stars and Stripes Mentoring Program is a special component to the BEYA Conference, as it offers an invaluable experience where approximately 300 pre-college (middle and high school) students and engineering majors from local colleges and universities are able to engage nearly 100 flag officers of all Services in inspirational conversation, guidance and mentorship.

Created in February 2011 under the leadership of VADM (Ret) Anthony Winns and VADM (Ret) Walter Davis, the BEYA Stars and Stripes Mentoring Program is a two hour event where mentors not only speak to multiple groups of young people about leadership, STEM, and the rewards of military service, but take the time to deliver Service messages, build relationships, and serve as role models for influencers and prospective employees.

“I believe students would greatly benefit from the BEYA Stars and Stripes Mentoring Program due to the encouragement and influence they’ll receive through discussions of leadership and professional development,” VADM (Ret) Anthony Winns said.

BEYA Stars and Stripes Mentoring Program is a life-changing event for all student participants and mentors. During the event, there will be informative sessions that discuss leadership and professional development topics, which encourage students who are interested in STEM to continue their studies and strive for a STEM-related career.

This year’s mentors include but are not limited to the U.S. Army’s highest ranking information officer Lieutenant General Robert Ferrell, Commanding General of the U.S. Army Pacific  General Vincent Brooks, Vice Chief of Staff of the U.S. Air Force  General Larry Spencer and several other high ranking officers.
