Meet Our Current PATHS Scholars

Bethel Tessema

My name is Bethel Tessema and I am a junior in Computer Science at Colorado School of Mines. I was born in Las Vegas, spent most of my life living in Aurora, Colorado, and graduated from Smoky Hill High School in 2015. I decided to come to Mines to study Computer Science because I know how important computers are becoming in the world around us, and I want to be a part of the ground-breaking discoveries we can continue to unravel through programming. In my free time I like to read, travel, laugh and share good times with the people I love the most. I am passionate about my education and making my family proud. I am also very passionate about community outreach, especially in STEM. I think it is extremely important to get underrepresented groups more involved in STEM, and PATHS provides a great opportunity to do that. This program allows me to be a leader on my campus. The PATHS program provides me the opportunity to be a mentor to future PATHS scholars and show them how to be leaders as well.

Quinn Tenorio

Hi my name is Quinn Tenorio, currently a Junior majoring in Computer Science and minoring in Applied Mathematics! I was born and raised in Colorado, and have loved living here every day. It offers so much for me to do, and you can probably find me hiking one of the trails in the foothills. I am also super involved on campus, namely Undergraduate Student Government (as the Student Body President) and Admissions Tours (as a Student Ambassador).

Since this is my first year in college, it is very
exciting to have the chance to involved with our
computer science community through the PATHS program.
