Two Students Receive Bosch Scholarship for Industry Education

CEDAR RAPIDS, IA, July 13, 2009 — John Hayes and Jesse Ashby have been named the recipients of the 2009 Robert Bosch Scholarships through the NSCA Education Foundation. These $2,500 scholarships are granted to students pursuing careers in the electronic systems industry or a related field.

Hayes attends Columbia College Chicago and is working toward a bachelor’s degree in Audio Arts and Acoustics. He gained valuable, hands-on experience installing sound systems into a variety of commercial settings, and is anxious to contribute to the sound installation industry and work with new technologies and gadgets that are constantly improving and changing the industry.

Ashby, a second-time recipient of this scholarship with a wide array of experience in sound, lighting and design, will receive a bachelor’s degree in Theatre and Dance from Christopher Newport University in Newport News, VA.

“What particularly interests me about electronic systems is the speed with which technological advancements are made,? Ashby wrote in his application, “and the high probability of such advancements crossing into other industries.?
