Congratulations BESS Team

The Black Engineering Student Society (BESS) won the Technical Outreach Community Help (TORCH) Chapter of the Year Award for the second year in a row.

BESS, the Northeastern chapter of the National Society of Black Engineers, is dedicated to the recognition of under-represented minorities in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math fields, helping them prepare for their future careers. Although their focus is the success of under-represented minorities, they welcome all races and nationalities.

TORCH is an umbrella program of NSBE which encompasses outreach activities that impact non-NSBE members and NSBE members alike, especially pre-college youth in Black community. Although increasing membership may be a result of these activities, TORCH programs seek to provide services ahead of promoting membership.
