Industry and government need to keep high school and college students interested in science, technology, engineering and math for them to pursue STEM as a career, Stephanie Hill of Lockheed Martin said in May.

The Oakridger reported Monday that Hill told a Tennessee Valley Corridor National Summit audience more action is needed to energize students and address a potential shortage of STEM workers in the future.

According to the Oakridger, the summit featured discussions of workforce recruitment and retention challenges at the Energy Department‘s Y“‘12 National Security Complex.

“We are headed in the right direction, and I’m certain we’re going to see a change in the way our society recognizes and rewards students who show potential in the STEM subjects,” she said.

“To really be a great nation, we need to do a much better job reaching out to young girls and minority communities to help them access STEM educational opportunities and really see themselves as future scientists and engineers.”
