The National Society of Black Engineers welcomes alumni speaker Jonathan Blanchard (’16), Founder & Chief Executive Officer of STEMLETICS from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. this Friday, Dec. 10, in Room A (fourth floor of Campus Center).
Blanchard, who was born and raised in Flint, graduated Salutatorian of his class from the International Academy of Flint in 2011. After high school, Blanchard studied Electrical Engineering Kettering for two years before changing his major to Business Administration. It was after this transition that he knew he wanted to work with youth in education.
During Blanchard’s senior year at Kettering, he developed the idea for the STEMLETICS program and took on the business full time. Since then, STEMLETICS has helped more than 450 Genesee County students learn more about various STEM concepts through engaging curriculum.

A Kettering team took second place in the Standards for Educational Advancement and Accreditation Fifth Instant Case Competition on Nov. 27.
The team of Gerardo Rios (’21, ME), Adam Hudecek (’23, ME) and Curtis Bartz (’21, EE) took second place for their presentation, “Hospice Care During COVID-19.” Another Kettering team, Haley Fox (’21, ME), William Moss (’24, CS) and Paulene Lasaca (’26, Management) was among the 12 finalists of the competition, too.
The competition, “B-School Challenges for Preparing Leaders for Digital Era,” consisted of a written case analysis and video case presentation, judged by a panel of experts from academia and industry.
Professor John Grether used the competition as a group assignment in his Management 101 class and encouraged the two teams to enter the contest.
“I am especially proud of these students and their ability to engage in a broader discussion of the application of technology to business and social issues, as by doing so they fundamentally support the Kettering brand,” Grether said.
The virtual event took place in New Delhi, India.
