Hamilton Relay, Captioned Telephone Service provider for the state of Virginia, has awarded a $500 college scholarship to Dina Ayad, a student of Douglas S. Freeman High School from Richmond, VA.
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 Virginia Outreach Coordinator, Marta Cagle. "We are excited to have the opportunity to contribute to furthering Dina's education and wish her success in reaching her personal and professional goals."
Dina Ayad was awarded the $500 Hamilton Scholarship after completing an application and writing an essay under the topic of communication technology. Dina plans to attend Liberty University this Fall.
