Recent BRVGS/William Monroe HS graduate Isaac McSherry had an outstanding senior internship experience with MITRE corporation in 2016-17, beginning in summer of 2016.  MITRE corporation is "a not-for-profit company that operates multiple federally funded research and development centers... provid(ing) innovative, practical solutions for some of our nation's most critical challenges in defense and intelligence, aviation, civil systems, homeland security, the judiciary, healthcare, and cybersecurity."  McSherry's internship with MITRE has brought him to many new experiences, including hosting for MITRE during the Tech Tour in October, as well as attendance at at the CBIC Awards Gala earlier this year.

As a continuation of his internship experience with MITRE, McSherry was flown out to Camp Pendelton by MITRE at the start of this summer to help train Marines to build 3D printed drones.  McSherry (in the center of the photo, in a black t-shirt), said of the experience, "Working with the Marines was an amazing experience.  I think the build was very successful, and exploring California by myself in my downtime was really fun!"  We are grateful to MITRE for the opportunities provided to Isaac, and proud of the way that he has made the most of those opportuntities!
