INDIANAPOLIS — Keeanna Warren, Purdue Polytechnic High School North principal, took home the Outstanding Educator in STEM award during the 2020 Women & Hi Tech Leading Light Awards and Scholarship Gala.
The Leading Light awards focused on Indiana women in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) with a focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion. There were over 160 Leading Light nominees for 30 awards in different categories. Also nominated for Outstanding Educator in STEM were PPHS North teachers Liz Irk and Ronni Moore.
“It was an honor to be recognized by Women & Hi-Tech and to have the opportunity to shine a light on the work being done by the PPHS North team to support and celebrate diversity and inclusion within our school and the STEM field,” Warren said. “This type of work cannot be done alone, and I want to recognize my fellow PPHS North colleagues, Ronni Moore and Liz Irk, who were also nominated. I am incredibly proud and grateful to work with such amazing women, and I’m excited to see what we can accomplish in the future.”
