It is with great excitement that the Crooms AoIT Alumni are pleased to announce Benjamin B. as the recipient of the Crooms AoIT Alumni Community Scholarship for the 2008-2009 school year. This year, as a testament to the quality and competency of the Class of 2009, we had a pool of extremely well qualified applicants for this scholarship. After several hours of personal and group review, our scholarship review team arrived at Benjamin as our final pick on Tuesday evening.

The review of the Crooms AoIT Alumni Community Scholarship applications begins today. Overall, we had a great rush of applicants and the review process is going to prove to be pretty darn strenuous, but our Scholarship Review Team has been prepped and is ready to go. The primary review should be done by the end of this weekend. If all goes according to plan, we should be selecting a recipient no later than Thursday evening and announcing the individual by Friday.
