Student Highlight: Skyler Holland

November 1, 2022

Skyler Holland is a junior electrical engineering major from the small town of Hampton in the Lowcountry of South Carolina.  She has been a part of PEER&WISE for several years in many different ways.  Her journey began in middle school when she attended Project WISE’s week-long STEM camp.  This is where she fell in love with engineering and knew that she would one day attend Clemson University to major in electrical engineering.  Skyler participated as a camper at Project WISE for two summers.  Since coming to Clemson, Skyler has become a vital part of the PEER&WISE family.  She works as an intern student assistant in the office and performs various tasks daily.  Skyler is the editor of the weekly PEER&WISE newsletter and coordinates with many other staff and organizations to ensure that we share as many opportunities with our students as possible.  Since joining the team, Skyler’s responsibilities have grown, along with her love for the program.  She can be credited with making many of the flyers that can be seen around the office and has also tabled a few events for PEER&WISE and GE’s Next Engineers program.  She is also currently helping to update the test bank to keep things as up-to-date as possible for her fellow students.  This past summer, she also was a counselor for Project WISE and got to spend a week sharing her love and passion for engineering with the younger generation of women.  When she is not in the PEER&WISE office, Skyler is also an IT Technician for CECAS CORE and a Clemson Club Tennis team member.  After college, she plans to combine her minor in biological sciences with her electrical engineering major to work in the field of medical research.  She primarily is interested in the advancement of prosthetics and artificial organs but overall, she just wants to help people with the advancement of medicine and medical technology.
