Two ECPI University Students Awarded Scholarships from Charleston Digital Corridor Foundation

ECPI University students Eric Bell and Wesley Booth were pretty excited on May 16 when they both were presented $1,000 scholarships from the Charleston Digital Corridor Foundation. Together Amy Lawrence, Program Manager of the Charleston Digital Corridor and ECPI University’s Charleston Campus President, James Weaver presented the scholarships to the Electronics Engineering Technology and Network Security students.

This scholarship fund was created to educate tomorrow’s innovators by providing scholarships, internships, public speaking engagements and other relevant workforce development initiatives.  The students were selected based on academic performance, attendance and an essay judged by Digital Corridor member companies, eGroup, BoomTown and SLANT Media.

Each year, the Digital Corridor holds the iFive:K Run/Walk/Shuffle, Charleston’s only weekday, evening race through historic downtown Charleston, as both its spring networking event and a fundraiser for the scholarship.

“This partnership is a natural extension of our commitment to further the Charleston community by enhancing our native workforce and fostering lasting community relationships,” said James Weaver.
