After having a fantastic year participating in the 2012-2013 NSBE Try-Math-A-Lon competition, we are looking forward to having another great year with Pre-College Initiative (PCI)! We will be chartering two chapters for NSBE Jr. in which are Greater Indianapolis and the Minority Engineering Program of Indianapolis (MEPI).
Cree Harris will be the advisor for Greater Indianapolis NSBE Jr. chapter, while Eugene Hawkins will be the advisor for the MEPI NSBE Jr. Chapter.
The Greater Indianapolis Chapter will be having their officer elections take place at the end of August, and will be having a big celebration “Call-Out” meeting TBD. This will be the welcome and information meeting for all of the students (grades 6-12) who wish to become a part of Greater Indianapolis NSBE Jr. Chapter.
