NSCA EDUCATION FOUNDATION AWARDS SCHOLARSHIPS TO NEXT GENERATION OF INTEGRATORS

Winners have high hopes and goals for working in the systems electronic field

CEDAR RAPIDS, IA, October 12, 2007 — Heather Boyce has always been interested in audio industry. “There are very few women in this field. I was extremely grateful for this scholarship so I could finally pursue my dream of going to school for audio engineering,” said Boyce, from Full Sail Real World Education in Winter Park, Florida.

Boyce was among five high school students selected to receive a $1,000 scholarship from the NSCA Education Foundation. The students were selected based on letters of recommendation, grade point average and work experience in the commercial electronic systems industry.

Scholarship winner Brennan Wilkins said it was fantastic to receive the award. “It is great to see organizations like the NSCA Education Foundation investing in those who are just getting started in the industry,” he said.

“The industry has been clamoring for this,” said NSCA Education Foundation President Tom Frericks. “We need to build our workforce to keep up with the demand for skilled workers in our industry. These scholarships will help bring in the next generation of systems integrators.”

In addition to his schoolwork, Bakersfield College student Spencer Cordes gets on-the-job training by doing CAD work for NSCA member Serban Sound and Engineering. “I look forward to working in the engineering industry and this scholarship will benefit me greatly,” Cordes said.

Lindsay Mescher is using her scholarship to further her education at Brown Mackie College – Cincinnati. “I am pursuing a dream I‘ve had since I was a little girl,” Meschner said. “After graduating, I will attend another school to obtain my bachelor‘s degree for the business of music. I have a great feeling about my plans!”

Stephen Jacobs plans to study audio arts and acoustics at Columbia College in Chicago. “The electronic systems industry plays such a major role in the future of technology,” he said.
