Hamilton Relay, Telecommunications Relay and Captioned Telephone Service provider for the state of Louisiana, has awarded a $500 college scholarship to Jake Skipper, a student of Benton High School from Benton, 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 T. Bobbye Abney, Louisiana Outreach Coordinator. “We are excited to have the opportunity to contribute to furthering Jake’s education and wish him success in reaching his personal and professional goals.”
Jake was awarded the $500 Hamilton Relay Scholarship after completing the application process, including writing an essay under the topic of communication technology. Jake plans to attend Louisiana Tech University this fall to study computer information systems.
