DHSMSABC BOOSTER CLUB 2014-2015

Welcome

Welcome to the online home of the Dulles High School Math and Science Academy Booster Club (DHSMSABC)!

Our Mission

To support all Dulles High School Math and Science Academy (DHSMSA) students, faculty, staff and activities.

Achievements

In the two short years the internship program has been in existence, there have always been more interested students than internships – although we pledge to do our best to place all accepted student applicants.
This past summer, 24 DHSMSA students were interviewed by Booster Club-sourced internship sponsors – including Rice University, Texas Southern University, and the University of Houston. Positions in which these students were placed range from environmental biology, to biomedical engineering, computer science, physics research, chemistry research, and more – you can learn more about their experiences during the Senior Project Expo in May 2015.

What can you do?

Become a member and your membership dues this year will ensure preferred access to summer internship interviews for your Junior-class level students. We are currently seeking help for our seven committee members, and we encourage you to get involved by signing up so that you can take an active role in your child’s future.

Goal

An important goal for the DHSMSABC this year is to achieve a smooth succession of leadership – a majority of our Board officers have Seniors this year, and thus we have many leadership roles to fill for 2015-2016. Join us!

Mary Bourne Marth President Booster Club

I’m incredibly honored to lead the DHSMSABC this year, which will be very easy because we have such an outstanding Executive Board team. You can see our 2014-15 Officers here on the About page.
