When he learned of his selection, Masae told the Foundation: "I always try to apply as many scholarships as possible, but I receive only a handful of them. Therefore, it was a pleasant surprise to be notified that I was one of the recipients of the National William R. Reaugh Memorial Scholarship. This award reminds me that my hard work is recognized, and encourages me to continue making my best efforts to accomplish my goals. I truly appreciate the Foundation for Information Technology Education for awarding me such a prestigious scholarship.” Masae Patrick
