ARLINGTON- Arlington High School senior Sadie Hollingsworth attended the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Signing Day at the State Capitol in Olympia April 12.

Similar to a signing day for athletes, the Washington STEM Signing Day celebrates high school seniors from across the state who are involved with STEM education as they make their commitments to technical schools, colleges and universities.

Hollingsworth was one of 49 students who attended the event, one from each legislative district across the state. The students were joined by a Boeing representative, legislators and their families. This is the second year of the event.

Hollingsworth has been involved with welding at Arlington High School and will be competing at the SkillsUSA state competition April 25-27 in Yakima.

She has always been interested in space and astronomy, and would like to earn an aerospace engineering degree from the University of Washington.

“The best part of the signing day was to meet other students who are interested in the STEM field,” said Hollingsworth. “It was great making some new friends.”
