Activities and Achievements: Bradshaw worked as a Wilkes Admissions Ambassador, providing tours for prospective students. She also provided learning support for electrical engineering students working for the Academic Support Services Office. Most recently, she was a teaching assistant for electrical engineering and physics labs.
Bradshaw’s extracurricular activities include membership in the Society of Women Engineers, where she served as vice president. She also was a member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE), where she helped to host the group’s annual Engineering Olympics competition for high school students.
She also was the 2019-2020 recipient of the Wilkes University Alumni Association Scholarship, awarded to the family member of a Wilkes alumnus. Bradshaw’s father, Mark Bradshaw ’96, is Wilkes graduate with a degree in environmental engineering.
Noteworthy: Bradshaw was recognized with the 2020 Electrical Engineering Service Award for her contributions and volunteer service in the electrical engineering department. She also singles out her co-op experience as a particularly noteworthy part of her Wilkes experience, saying, “My favorite, and by far busiest, semester at Wilkes University was the spring of my junior year. I had a co-op at ON Semiconductor in Mountain Top. I was able to earn three credits while getting real-world experience and while taking 13 credits of other classes. I strongly recommend that every college student to have at least one internship before graduating so that they can understand what they want to do in the future.”
Favorite Part of the Wilkes experience: “My favorite thing about Wilkes is the family community. It is so easy to be involved on campus and meet new people. It feels like everyone at Wilkes is part of my extended family. I loved my first year at Wilkes so much that my sister, who is a year younger than me, chose to attend Wilkes as well.
Future plans: “I plan to get a job in electrical engineering that will use what I have learned in the classroom setting at Wilkes. I will have a certification as an engineer in training after graduation and plan to use it to eventually become a licensed professional engineer.”
