Lockheed Martin Corp., of Moorestown, recently awarded $4,000 scholarships to Rowan University engineering students Allison Daniello and Kelli Martino.
Daniello, 22, of Manalapan, is a senior mechanical engineering major and physics minor. She is currently president of Rowan’s Society of Women Engineers chapter and secretary for the University’s chapters of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and the Tau Beta Pi engineering honor society. Additionally, Daniello gives campus tours, sharing her college experiences and answering questions from prospective students as a Rowan admissions ambassador.
Interning for Boyis Lend Lease, a construction management company, Daniello helped coordinate the mechanical systems in a 13-story condominium building in Lower Manhattan. During the last two summers, Daniello researched methods of improving motorcycle safety at the Center for Injury Biomechanics at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University.
After graduating from Rowan in May, Daniello plans to attend Virginia Tech for graduate school.
Martino, 20, of Dennisville, is a junior studying mechanical engineering. Previously assuming roles as treasurer and secretary of the Society of Women Engineers at the University, Martino currently serves as the chapter's vice president. She continues her involvement as this year's fund-raising chair for Rowan's chapter of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. In addition to Rowan Engineering, she is involved in Rowan athletics and numerous other activities on campus.
After graduation, Martino plans to work in product development, likely in the areas of thermodynamics or mechanical design.
