May 25, 2013 – Hamilton Relay, Telecommunications Relay and Captioned Telephone Service provider for the state of Idaho, has awarded a $500 college scholarship to Emily Coleman, a student of Centennial High from Boise, Idaho.
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 they serve.
"Hamilton takes pride in creating opportunities for higher education and promoting outstanding leadership across the country," said Idaho Relay Outreach Coordinator, Emilie Pennie. "We are excited to have the opportunity to contribute to furthering Emily's education and wish her success in reaching her personal and professional goals."
Emily was awarded the $500 Hamilton Relay Scholarship after completing an application and writing an essay under the topic of communication technology. Emily plans to attend Brigham Young University this Fall to study Business Marketing and Advertising.
