Tacoma/Pierce Students Receive $13,000 in Comcast Technology Scholarships

3,scholarship recipientsComcast has awarded five Technology Scholarships to Tacoma-area students at the annual Elizabeth Wesley Merit Incentive Program ceremony, held at Clover Park Technical College in Lakewood.

Comcast, in partnership with the Tacoma Urban League, identified student applicants who expressed an interest in pursuing careers in technology and innovation.  Three students received $1,000 scholarships and two were awarded $5,000 scholarships.

One $5,000 scholarship recipient is Sharon Washington from Washington High School in Tacoma.

“I wanted to, again, express my appreciation,” wrote Sharon. “Thank you so much for investing in me, as well as my dreams.”

Comcast has supported the E. Wesley Program for eight years, both believing it’s important to understand the disparities in education for minorities communities and that together, we can do something about it.

“We appreciate that our Comcast scholarship recipients have expressed an interest in technology-oriented careers,” said Diem Ly, External Affairs Manager for Comcast, who spoke and presented the scholarships at the event. “We hope, like Sharon, this recognition gives them the encouragement and empowerment to pursue their dreams.”
