Hamilton Relay, telecommunications relay service provider for the state of Rhode Island, has awarded a $500 college scholarship to Samantha H. Collins of Warwick, Rhode Island, a student of Toll Gate High School.
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 Rhode Island Outreach Coordinator, Courtenay Petracca. "We are excited to have the opportunity to contribute to furthering Samantha's education and wish her success in reaching her personal and professional goals."
Samantha Collins was awarded the $500 Hamilton Scholarship after completing an application and writing an essay under the topic of communication technology. Samantha plans to attend the University of Rhode Island this Fall to study in the field of Nursing.
