Hamilton Relay, telecommunications relay service provider for the state of Louisiana, has awarded a $500 college scholarship to Mechelle Cureaux, a student of Slidell High School from Slidell, Louisiana.
The Hamilton Relay Scholarship opportunity is offered 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 relay 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 Louisiana Outreach Coordinator, Henry Brinkmann. "We are excited to have the opportunity to contribute to furthering Mechelle Cureaux's education and wish her success in reaching her personal and professional goals."
Mechelle Cureaux was awarded the $500 Hamilton Scholarship after completing an application and writing an essay under the topic of communication technology. Mechelle plans to attend Loyola University in New Orleans this fall to study Biochemistry.
