DHSMSABC BOOSTER CLUB 2014-2015
Welcome to the online home of the Dulles High School Math and Science Academy Booster
To support all Dulles High School Math and Science Academy (DHSMSA)
students, faculty, staff and activities.
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.
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.
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.
