2007 Robert Half Technology/AITP $2,500 Scholarship Winners were announced and presented during the 2007 AITP National Collegiate Conference closing awards banquet Saturday night 3/31/2007 in Detroit.
Here are some quotes from the "happy and proud" winners:
Daniel Fowler, Tarleton State University First off, thank you Robert Half Technology and AITP for forming the alliance and hosting the national conference which gives a chance for future IT professionals like myself to demonstrate our skills and network with current IT professionals. The RHT scholarship will help reduce the increasing cost of tuition and reminds me that IT professionals like RHT are aware of our efforts in continuing our professional development through organizations such as AITP. I will continue to be a part of AITP as a professional member and I look forward to working for an organization that gives back such as RHT. Thank you!
James Conley, Gateway Technical College I would like to take the time to thank Robert Half Technology and the Association of Information Technology Professionals for awarding me the 2007 RHT/AITP scholarship award. It means so much to me in furthering my education. It feels good to know that if you put in hard work and dedication that someone will recognize your efforts. The scholarship leaves me rejuvenated and motivated to achieve excellence. The AITP National Collegiate Conference was great as always, it really helps to network and get the latest technology and information form AITP members. I want to give a personal Thank You to Katherine Spencer Lee, Kevin Jetton, Gateway Technical College, my friends and family for supporting me and making my journey back to college an experience of a life time. I spent 18 years in the automotive industry until my job was shipped overseas. Going back to college was a big decision for me at the age of forty. I wanted a career and not just a dead end job. I can not find the words to express the gratitude and appreciation that I feel by receiving this scholarship. I hope one day that I can reach and guide a child, student, adult, dislocated worker or anyone that needs encouragement and support when they get ready to reach for excellence!
