Judy has been involved with Future Problem Solving since 2005, when she competed at her first State Bowl in Global Issues Problem Solving Team competition. Her team was recognized with an Honorable Mention. In the years that have followed, Judy has continued her participation in Global Issues Problem Solving Team competitions, being invited for several of the years to the State Bowl to compete. Judy tried her hand at Scenario Writing, where she was again recognized for her talent with an Honorable Mention.
When Judy left her middle school, where the program had a strong hold in the school’s gifted program, she was met at her new high school with no FPS Program. Judy and a fellow student sought out the advice of former coaches and state FPS directors to get a program started at her high school. Judy, as club founder and President, wrote the club constitution, recruited and trained club sponsors and members after herself attending the VAFPS coaches training workshop.
Her coach says of her, “Judy’s considerable efforts have unlocked the myriad possibilities for creative, imaginative, engaged learning, which this program embodies, to a new generation of Maggie L. Walker’s gifted students who personify the need for its existence. It was through her exceptional determination and perseverance in navigating the elaborate administrative requirements for launching and coordinating a new club in a school governed by a twelve district regional board that the FPS club at Maggie Walker Governor’s School has taken hold.”
Judy has been accepted at Princeton University where she plans to study Operations Research and Financial Engineering.
