April 30, 2018–Hamilton Relay, Telecommunications Relay and Captioned Telephone Service provider for the state of Louisiana, has awarded a $500 college scholarship to Mary Avera, a student of Broadmoor High School from Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
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 Carol Tisdale, Louisiana Outreach Coordinator. “We are excited to have the opportunity to contribute to furthering Mary's education and wish her success in reaching her personal and professional goals.”
Mary was awarded the $500 Hamilton Relay Scholarship after completing the application process, including writing an essay under the topic of communication technology. Mary plans to attend Baton Rouge Community College this fall to study veterinary technology.
