Home Resume Professional Statement Research Links

Hello my name is Kathryne Arrianna Vernelle Burton and I am from Prince George's County, Maryland. I am currently a freshman at Elizabeth City State University, pursuing a bachelor's degree in Computer Science. My family has always had an influence on my life; both my parents and my siblings are graduates of the same institution, which has inspired me to maintain the family legacy. Observing my siblings excel through the Computer Science Department inspired the choice of my major. Upon my arrival to ECSU, I was accepted into the Center of Excellence in Remote Sensing Education and Research Program (CERSER), lead by Dr. Linda B. Hayden. Being a student involved in this program will open many opportunities to my disposal such as research projects, and opportunities on campus and abroad. Thus far, I have participated in the Women In Math Celebration. During this outreach program I assisted Dr. Cheryl Lewis with the Math Sprint Competition. During the competition a team of girls from middle schools in the surrounding areas completed problems under a time constraint. CERSER has also allowed me to become a member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), where I am apart of the Event/Outreach Committee. I am expected to graduate in the December 2017, after which I will be attending graduate school to pursue a master's degree. While attending graduate school, I aspire to work in the Public Affairs Department in the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), where I have participated in various outreach programs.
