Saturday, May 28, 2016

Mitchell, who has a 5.18 grade point average, is on the engineering track at Mallard Creek, a member of the Academy of Engineering and aims to pursue architecture as a career. She interned at a Charlotte architecture firm last summer as part of the Mayors Youth Employment Program and completed several projects.


“It kind of allowed me to see what I wanted to do and get a taste of what I’ll probably be experiencing within the next five to 10 years,” she said.
Mitchell hasn’t decided on a college, but UNC Charlotte, N.C. State University and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in New York have accepted her. All three have architecture programs.
