Kouaho, a senior, and Lewis, a sophomore, received the scholarships for their outstanding academic performance in technology-based majors; both students are pursuing a degree in computer science.

“All recipients have excelled in the classroom as well as in various leadership roles. We accomplish our mission by fostering close relationships between Alabama’s academic, industrial and government communities in areas that relate to the development of a skilled I.T. workforce. One of our primary vehicles is scholarships with local colleges and universities,” said Rob Pirnie, president, Alabama Technology Foundation (ATF).
