UMass Lowell Computer Science professor Holly Yanco was one of twenty Massachusetts leaders honored as “Women to Watch” for 2013 at an event held at the Boston Westin Waterfront on May 9, 2013.

The award was given by the Mass High Tech Council and the Boston Business Journal in their 10th ceremony. As part of the event, $3,200 was raised for the Science Club for Girls.

In her remarks accepting the award, Yanco urged Massachusetts to adopt K–12 standards for computer science education, and make sure that all children in the state have the opportunity to learn computer science.
