Michellene Ruiz and Faith Ndegwa have their sights set on achieving greatness. They enroll in advanced classes each summer, and during the school year are involved with clubs at their school, Roseland Collegiate Prep, that emphasize leadership and good study habits.

Ruiz and Ndegwa, both 15, were among about 120 students attending the Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day hosted by Keysight Technologies in Santa Rosa.
