Hamilton Relay, Telecommunications Relay and Captioned Telephone Service provider for the state of Georgia, has awarded a $500 college scholarship to Darison Daggett, a student of Georgia School for the Deaf from Rome, Georgia.
The Hamilton Relay Scholarship opportunity is available 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 service provider and is one of several ways the company gives back to the communities it serves.
“Hamilton takes pride in recognizing outstanding leadership and promoting education,” said outreach coordinator Brendan Underwood, Georgia Outreach Coordinator. “We are excited to have the opportunity to contribute to furthering Darison's education and wish him success in reaching his personal and professional goals.”
Darison was awarded the $500 Hamilton Relay Scholarship after completing the application process, including writing an essay under the topic of communication technology. He plans to attend Rochester Institute of Technology’s National Technical Institute for the Deaf this fall to study film and animation.
