Scholarship Awards Night Goes Virtual


The chapter held its annual Awards Night virtually in June with 107 people attending. Jessica Morgenstern, chapter vice president of scholarships, served as master of ceremony, and sponsors helped make the presentations. Nineteen students received scholarships totaling $185,000. At one point in the meeting, the chapter boasted 44 people on the screen in total. This was an impressive group! Each student responded to a thought-provoking question. One student sent an email, which included the following statement of gratitude: "... a huge thanks to all board members and sponsors that have provided me with such an amazing opportunity to advance my education. I am truly grateful to have received this Merit Scholarship, and I am confident that I have what it takes to be an exceptional computer scientist. I am happy to be a part of the AFCEA community and look forward to keeping you updated while in college. Thank you, and I am honored to be a part of this wonderful community."
