2018 Scholarship Recipient - J. Bayert

I am very grateful to receive this scholarship as it will help me pay for college and double major. I am a sophomore at Valparaiso University and double majoring in electrical engineering and mathematics. I am the Vice President of Valpo Robotics, and was part of the robotic football team that won the National Championship. I want to pursue a career in robotics at NASA. I graduated high school from Naperville Christian Academy.

In my free time I enjoy playing tennis and dodge ball, and was on my high school's volleyball team throughout high school. I am also active in Church. In the summer, I enjoy fishing in Wisconsin. Some of my favorite books are The Lord of the Rings trilogy, and also Things to Make and Do in the Fourth Dimension.

But most of all, I love to solve problems and seek out the hardest problems. This has led me to pursue a college degree in engineering. As Piet Hein said, "Problems worthy of attack prove their worth by hitting back."
