Crooms AoIT Alumni Association awards scholarships to three graduating seniors

The Crooms AoIT Alumni Association is proud to announce the winners of its two scholarships for the Class of 2020.

The Crooms AoIT Alumni Association Tech Innovation Scholarship, sponsored by the Class of 2009, worth $1,000 is being awarded to Eyad H. Even though the disruptions caused by COVID-19, our Crooms AoIT students submitted excellent examples of their technology prowess. Eyad's submission of a proof-of-concept video game using Java stood out as an example of the technical ability of Crooms AoIT students to build their own code-base while also integrating SDK libraries from third-parties. Eyad plans to study computer engineering in the fall at a Florida university.

The Crooms AoIT Alumni Association Community Scholarship valued at $1,000 is being awarded to Joelyz W. For the first time ever, the evaluation committee has also decided to award a $250 runner-up scholarship to Corey C. These decisions follow receipt of the largest number of scholarship applications -31 in total - in the Community Scholarship’s 14 year history. Each applicant demonstrated how volunteerism and community service is important to them and how Crooms AoIT has positioned the graduating seniors to support their communities. Joelyz's tremendous involvement both at Crooms with 15+ clubs / groups, and in her community volunteering at multiple local organizations while maintaining a high GPA was extremely impressive! She is choosing between several strong Florida universities for attendance in the fall. Corey C. also had excellent volunteering experience along with a strong ability to convey thought and emotion in his writing, and he plans to attend Seminole State College in the fall to study business.

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 2020 - the best of luck in your future endeavors!
