Hamilton Relay, Captioned Telephone Relay Service provider for the state of Pennsylvania, has awarded a $500 college scholarship to Andrew Geist, a student of State College Area High School from Lemont, Pennsylvania.
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 promoting education and outstanding leadership across the country," said Pennsylvania Outreach Coordinator, Lauren Cramer. "We are excited to have the opportunity to contribute to furthering Andrew's education and wish him success in reaching his personal and professional goals."
Andrew Geist was awarded the $500 Hamilton Scholarship after completing an application and writing an essay under the topic of communication technology. Andrew plans to attend Pennsylvania State University this Fall to study mechanical engineering.
