Hamilton Relay, the telecommunications relay service provider for the District of Columbia, has awarded a $500 college scholarship to Lauren Sebaugh of Chesterfield, Missouri, a student of Model Secondary School for the Deaf in Washington, D.C.
The Hamilton Relay Scholarship opportunity is offered to high school seniors who are deaf, hard of hearing, deaf-blind or have difficulty speaking. A recipient is selected within each of the states where Hamilton is the contracted relay service provider and is one of several ways the company gives back to the communities they serve.
"Hamilton takes pride in promoting education and outstanding leadership across the country," said District of Columbia Outreach Coordinator, Lauren Cramer. "We are excited to have the opportunity to contribute to furthering Lauren's education and wish her success in reaching her personal and professional goals."
Lauren Sebaugh was awarded the $500 Hamilton Scholarship after completing an application and writing an essay under the topic of communication technology. Lauren plans to attend Rochester Institute of Technology this Fall to study in Liberal Arts.
