Congresswoman Betty McCollum met with members of the Irondale High School robotics team visiting Washington June 21 after an award-winning performance in the FIRST Robotics Championships, held in St. Louis at the end of April. The Irondale team built a robot that competed in a castle-themed competition that required it to breach defenses, climb towers, and shoot foam balls.

Annette D’Onofrio, Irondale class of 2006, has received her PhD from Stanford University in Linguistics with a focus in Socio-Linguistics and has accepted an associate professorship in the Linguistics Department at Northwestern in Evanston, beginning this fall.
