The SMTA Awards Committee selected Emily for her committed leadership in the SMTA.

Upon completion of her studies, Emily would like to work as a professional researcher at the NASA Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, Ohio, where she could contribute towards the advancement of technology in various fields of research.
The $3000 JoAnn Stromberg Student Leadership Scholarship, given in honor of the nearly 30 years of service dedicated by former Executive Administrator, JoAnn Stromberg, was established following her retirement in 2015. The purpose of this scholarship is to encourage students to take on more leadership opportunities and strengthen the connection between students and the electronics industry.
The Stromberg Scholarship is awarded annually to a student pursuing a degree in electronics and actively involved in the SMTA. The scholarship is intended for the purchase of technical books and research materials, for participation in conferences related to electronics assembly and packaging, and for living expenses if necessary.
The award will be presented in person at the 2022 SMTA International Conference, October 31 - November 3, 2022 in Minneapolis, MN, USA.
