It’s that time of year again — books are being ordered, office supplies purchased in mass quantities, miniature refrigerators and microwaves packed into the backs of minivans and SUVs along with all the most prized possessions of so many young adults heading for their first year of college. Among them is Mersina Simanski, the winner of KVH’s 2011 Arent Kits van Heyningen Technology Scholarship, who will soon be on her way to the prestigious Stanford University in Palo Alto, CA.

We wish Mersina the best as she begins her studies in civil and environmental engineering at Stanford this fall. With her impressive performance at Middletown High School and a true passion for engineering that is both infectious and impossible to ignore, we know that Mersina will be a leader in the engineering profession, and we’re proud to count her among our scholars. Those ranks also include:

2010: James Steele (University of Rhode Island)
2009: Michael Kelley (Brown University)
2008: Samantha Sinapi (Worcester Polytechnic Institute)
