“I am truly honored that the ISyE Undergraduate Education Committee chose me to be this year's Mahendra Bakshi - Sant Ram Arora Memorial Scholarship recipient. This scholarship so generously supports my undergraduate education, which I value incredibly much. My experience here at the University of Minnesota has been amazing, and I am grateful to be able to receive financial support to further both my experiences and education here. I have grown passionate about industrial and systems engineering over my first 2 short but impactful years of studies, and I cannot wait to continue them in the fall with the help of this scholarship. Thank you to the Aurora family for their generosity and kindness that supports my dreams!” -Paige Hermann
