Savannah Herring is currently a third-year student working towards a Bachelor of Science, Mechanical Engineering graduating in May, 2018 from the University of Kansas in Lawrence, Kansas. From there, she hopes to pursue her passion of building and designing new products. Savannah had the unique opportunity to study abroad at University of Wollongong in Australia and complimented her engineering course of study while networking with those from a different culture.
When Savannah is not participating in clubs at KU, she enjoys spending her time working on creative projects, as it is her dream to bring together art and mechanical design. She also spends a great deal of time in various volunteer activities to include outdoor, civic, and community programs. Savannah wanted to join Jayhawks Breaking Barriers in order to learn more about the gender gap in academia and industry and to try and solve the problem of the gender gap.
