Stoneberg, daughter of David and Lisa, is a senior at Port Huron Northern High School.
Her accomplishments include serving as class president for the past five years and
leading her robotics team to the FIRST Robotics World Championship competition. In
addition to her studies in engineering management, Stoneberg plans to study abroad and participate in an internship during her time
at Michigan Tech.
She said: “I am so grateful for this opportunity to affordably achieve an education in such a highly regarded business program. The majors offered are unique because of the blend of business and STEM. I know I wouldn’t get an education like this anywhere else.”
The Impact Scholarship, organized by Michigan Tech’s Admissions Office, Financial Aid Office and College of Business, is an annual competitive award recognizing business majors
and leaders at MTU. This year, 25 high school senior finalists from four states participated
in leadership activities on campus and received renewable awards ranging from $1,000
to full in-state tuition.
“Admissions Office staff were immediately impressed with Ava’s poised and professional presence. We feel confident she will be an excellent ambassador for the Michigan Tech College of Business as she continues to develop her leadership and business skills as a student,” said Allison Carter, a director of admissions at Michigan Tech.
Stoneberg is also active in National Honor Society, Diversity Club, Ski Club, Renaissance Club and Student Council. In her free time, she enjoys painting, hanging out with friends and spending time in nature.
Next year’s Michigan Tech Impact Scholarship Competition will be held on campus in Houghton, Michigan, Sunday, Jan. 31, 2021, and Monday, Feb. 1, 2021. The application to apply will be available in summer 2020.
