Hamilton Relay, Telecommunications Relay and Captioned Telephone Service provider for the state of Washington, has awarded a $500 college scholarship to Steve Garcia-Camacho, a student of Puyallup High School from Puyallup, Washington.
The Hamilton Relay Scholarship opportunity is available to high school seniors who are deaf, hard of hearing, DeafBlind 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 Elizabeth Luttrell, Washington Outreach Coordinator. “We are excited to have the opportunity to contribute to furthering Steve’s education and wish him success in reaching his personal and professional goals.”
Steve was awarded the $500 Hamilton Relay Scholarship after completing the application process, including writing an essay under the topic of communication technology. Steve plans to attend college this fall to pursue a degree in computer programming.
