Angela Beck, a junior Pitt student and former Ringgold co-valedictorian, earned the 2014 Barry M. Goldwater Honorable Mention. The Barry M.

Each year, approximately 1,200 sophomore and junior students majoring in mathematics, science or engineering are nominated nationwide for the award. Approximately 300 students are awarded the Barry Goldwater Scholarship and roughly 150 students receive honorable mention. To compete for the Goldwater Scholarship at the national level, the student must be nominated by his or her institution. Universities are only allowed to nominate four students to represent them, and Angela received a unanimous vote to represent the University of Pittsburgh.

At Pitt, Angela majors in bioengineering with minors in chemistry and mathematics. She has completed studies and experiments in stem cell research, which earned her co-author of a peer-reviewed paper that is published in the journal Tissue Engineering-Part A.

In addition to her studies, Angela is the Design Project Liaison of Engineers for Sustainable Medical Development and is a Freshman Peer Advisor. She has also competed three years in a row at the National NIRSA competition with the PITT Women's Club Soccer team and remains a cantor at St. Damien of Molokai Parish in Monongahela. Currently, Angela is participating in a co-op with Cohera Medical, Inc.®, located in Pittsburgh, where she does research and development on surgical adhesives.
