Beth Perkins is a senior at A&M Consolidated High School in College Station, Texas. She began coding her freshman year when she took a Computer Programming class. She discovered that she loved programming and went on to take Computer Programming 2. Last summer she had the privilege of attending Code Longhorn, a programming camp held at the University of Texas at Austin. She is currently a member of Business Professionals of America, and next month she will be competing in Java Programming at the state level. This fall she will be attending Brigham Young University and majoring in Computer Science. She is the oldest of six siblings and loves to spend time with them, read books, and hike in the mountains (which is why she has to leave Texas for college).
