A sampling of the feedback we received from the recipients: "It is such a great honor to be awarded the national FITE/Kevin Jetton Scholarship. I am very grateful for being recognized by the FITE committee and thankful for the award, it will help me achieve my degree in Information Systems at Ball State University. My association with AITP has really paved the way for having new experiences within the IT field. AITP has opened so many doors for networking with both students and professionals alike, which I think has helped to lay the groundwork for the start of my career. I truly look forward to my future with AITP, and continuing involvement at both the professional and student level. Thank you so very much for awarding me the FITE/Kevin Jetton Scholarship."
