Crooms AoIT Alumni Association announces winners of two scholarships

The Crooms AoIT Alumni Association is proud to announce the winners of its two scholarships for the Class of 2019.

The Crooms AoIT Alumni Association Tech Innovation Scholarship worth $750 is being awarded to Alex Q. This year's field of Innovation Scholarship applicants was one of the strongest the Alumni Association has reviewed to date. The review committee was impressed by the quality of all of the applications. Alex's submission of "Particle Swarm Optimization of Machine Learning Ensembles" stood out for both being an example of emerging technologies of the 4th Industrial Revolution while also being elegant in the simplicity of its code base. Alex will be attending the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the fall to study computer science.

The Crooms AoIT Alumni Association/Crooms AoIT Business Advisory Council Community Scholarship worth $750 is being awarded to Shiloh F. This year again marked a crowded field of applications for the Community scholarship, with each applicant showing how volunteerism and community service is important to them. Shiloh has been particularly active in the Sanford Youth Council and its initiative to raise awareness about human trafficking. Shiloh will be attending Florida State University.

The Crooms AoIT Alumni Association would like to thank this year’s applicants for their hard work and efforts, and we wish all of you – and, all of the graduates from the Class of 2019 - the best of luck in your future endeavors!
