“In this primer I seek to inspire parents, mentors, and the community alike to guide students in their quest for Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics related education and careers, and engage them in meaningful experiences, and identify resources and networks that will propel them to academic and career opportunities,” said Wilkerson-Johnson.
