CETA STUDENTS RECOGNIZED AT 2018 SCHOLARSHIP EVENT

Amelia

Nearly 100 CETA students were recognized at an annual scholarship reception on Tuesday, April 17. They were joined by generous donors and supporters of the University, who were able to hear first-hand how their gifts have impacted the students. Over $150,000 in scholarship funds was awarded.

Amelia Hemingway Martin ’18 received a gift from the Sharon and Paul Oliva Engineering Scholarship Fund, which supports mechanical engineering students from New England.  She says its helped place her one step closer to her dream of designing ships and submarines. “I grew up on the coast in Newcastle, Maine, and whenever I cross the bridge into nearby Bath, I’m always amazed to see the ships being worked on in the General Dynamics Shipyard,” Amelia says. “Receiving the scholarship encourages me to continue to do well in my studies, and I’m so very thankful to the Oliva’s.”

Many of the students shared Amelia’s view on the support they’ve received: “There are very nice people who value and are willing to help people pursue their schooling, and we’re all very honored,” shared Digno Iglesias ’18, recipient of the Dr. Ernest P. Gardow Endowed Scholarship.

Each year, CETA acknowledges the efforts and achievements of deserving students. At the event, recipients can take a moment to address what it means to them and their families to receive a scholarship and thank the supporters who make the awards a reality.

“CETA congratulates all the students nominated and honored,” says Dean Lou Manzione. “And, of course, a tremendous thank you to all donors whose generosity allowed the students of CETA to celebrate and continue on their educational and career paths.”
