The Automation Conference 2014 Scholarship Winners

Nov. 20, 2014
Tri-County Technical College awards four students with David A. Harvey Memorial Scholarships.

Since the inception of The Automation Conference in 2012, one of the goals of the conference has been to support the next generation of automation technology experts. To achieve this goal, we developed the David A. Harvey Memorial Scholarship Award (named for Automation World’s founding publisher) to help deserving students working toward an engineering/industrial technology career complete their college or technical school education.

At The Automation Conference 2014 (held in Chicago on May 20-21), we awarded Tri-County Technical College with this year’s David A. Harvey scholarship, allowing the college to determine how best to award the funds to students. The college determined that four Industrial Electronics Technology (IET) students will split the $4500 scholarship, with each student receiving $1,125 to assist with tuition and book expenses for the summer 2015 session.

Scholarship award determination was made based on recipients having a 2.8 GPA or higher, being an IET major, and a written essay describing the reason they decided to major in IET and where they see themselves in five years.

The winners were Jason Flynn, Vicentiu Iorga, Jonathan Hamrick, and Sidney Davis.
