Four students and alumni from the Clark School have been accepted recently into challenging U.S. Navy nuclear power programs.

Louis Wu is an aerospace engineer and graduated in May of 2010.  He is one of more than 100 graduating seniors in the United States hired to serve in U.S. Navy on a submarine. He arrived at Officer Candidate School in July and is very eager to start his Naval career. Wu is a native of Gaithersburg, Md.

James Steele is a mechanical engineer and graduated in May of 2010 as well. He is one of more than 20 graduating seniors hired to serve as a naval reactors engineer in Washington, D.C., which will allow him to stay close to home his entire Naval career. He will report to Officer Development School in Newport, R.I., in September. Steele is a native of Dunkirk, Md.

Bryan Lowry and Patrick Hearn, both aerospace engineering students, are taking full advantage of the Navy's Nuclear Power Officer Candidate Scholarship Program. Each will earn about $4,000 per month until he graduates. Lowry was accepted into the program in June and will graduate in May of 2013. Hearn was accepted into the program in July and will graduate in May of 2012. Both have received a $15,000 bonus. Lowry will serve as submariner and Hearn as a surface warfare officer in the U.S. Navy after graduation. Lowry hails from Waynesboro, Penn., and Hearn is a Sykesville, Md., native.

A representative of the U.S. Navy credited the Clark School's Engineering Co-op and Career Services Office with helping to find suitable students for the positions offered by the program.
