Conard High School is proud to announce that Ava DeLaCruz has been named as an Honorable Mention in the 2018 National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT) Award for Aspirations in Computing.  

Each year, U.S. high school women in grades 9 through 12 are eligible to receive recognition for their demonstrated interest and achievements in computing, proven leadership ability, academic performance, and plans for post‑secondary education.
