Hayley Lewis

hayley lewis

Hayley Lewis, proud founding member and former team captain of GET SMART, recently earned her bachelor’s degree from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Space Flight Operations, with minors in Systems Engineering, Computer Science, Human Factors, and Space Studies. Hayley, now a Satellite Systems Engineer for The Boeing Company, recently secured a sponsorship for our team, for which we will forever be grateful. Hayley states the biggest lesson she learned from GET SMART was confidence, being able to stick up for her decisions in a group with diverse opinions. This gave her an edge over her peers in college and in her career. To anyone thinking about joining the team, “join and see what you’re interested in, there’s something for everyone to do and learn.” Now that she works at Boeing, which has FIRST activities and sponsorships, she realizes how big FIRST is and the impact it can make on your future.

Chandler Douglas

Chandler Douglas

Chandler Douglas discovered his interest in engineering as a founding member of the team, and is now a software engineer for Garage Solutions LLC, developing health care software. He also is a full-time student at the University of Central Florida (UCF) and will be graduating in 2019. GET SMART was a rewarding and valuable experience for Chandler, teaching him essential problem-solving, critical thinking, and teamwork skills. He learned how to work in a high-pressure environment similar to his current workplace, and to him, this team is “the best thing you could do during high school in Lake City.” When Chandler was a member of the team, there was no STEM in Lake City, and now the program has exploded into something big, with many FLL and FRC teams across the county. When it comes to memories, one of the coolest things for him was in his second year, when GET SMART was chosen by the first seed alliance due to the autonomous code he had created.

Winston Kam

Winston Kam

The Winston Kam, team member since 2014, graduated in 2018 and earned a full ride to Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio with the Gates Scholarship. Currently majoring in Materials Science and Engineering with a minor in Data Science, the scholarship was confirmation of his hard work and dedication. “Without the skills I gained from being a part of GET SMART…I would not be anywhere near as successful as I am proud to say I am now.” Although he increased his technical knowledge in CAD and overall engineering design, the interpersonal communication skills he learned through the team were even more valuable. Winston believes GET SMART is a blessing for students wanting to further their education through hands on learning.  “I truly believe it’s the best thing I have ever been a part of and joining was the best decision I ever made.” In ten years, he sees himself working in an engineering firm or research and development for a large industrial corporation. We are proud to call THE Winston Kam a retired agent of GET SMART.
