April 5, 2016–Hamilton Relay, Telecommunications Relay and Captioned Telephone Service provider for the state of Rhode Island, has awarded a $500 college scholarship to Matthew Lavoie, a student of Tiverton High School from Tiverton, Rhode Island.
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 recognizing outstanding leadership and promoting education,” said Courtenay St. Germain, Rhode Island Outreach Coordinator. “We are excited to have the opportunity to contribute to furthering Matthew's education and wish him success in reaching his personal and professional goals.”
Matthew was awarded the $500 Hamilton Relay Scholarship after completing the application process, including writing an essay under the topic of communication technology. Matthew plans to attend either the University of Rhode Island or University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth this fall to study Civil Engineering.
