Hamilton Relay, Captioned Telephone Service provider for the state of Virginia, has awarded a $500 college scholarship to Hamid Mahabad, a student of Glen Allen High School from Richmond, Virginia.
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 creating opportunities for higher education and promoting outstanding leadership across the country,” said Marta Cagle, Virginia Captioned Telephone Outreach Coordinator. “We are excited to have the opportunity to contribute to furthering Hamid's education and wish him success in reaching his personal and professional goals.”
Hamid was awarded the $500 Hamilton Relay Scholarship after completing an application and writing an essay under the topic of communication technology. Hamid plans to attend Laguna College of Art & Design this fall to study Computer Animation.
