Computer Science Program at Covenant Stands Out in ChaTech Scholarship Competition

 

The Chattanooga Technology Council (ChaTech) recognized Covenant College's computer science department by awarding scholarships to four outstanding Covenant students. David Moran ’20, Avery Radmacher ’21, David Reed ’19, and John Strelchenko ’19 were each awarded $1,000 scholarships from ChaTech at their annual awards ceremony on June 15, 2018. 

 

Covenant students made up almost half of the total scholarship recipients, a record-winning percentage for any participating college throughout ChaTech’s scholarship program history. Over the past three years, Covenant students have participated in ChaTech’s scholarship competition, averaging about 2-3 winners per year. 

 

 

“The Chattanooga Technology Council (ChaTech) is thrilled to support the education of these four Covenant students. On behalf of ChaTech and its member companies, it is our mission to invest in bright young people like Avery, David, John, and David, and have them start their tech careers here in Chattanooga. Congratulations to them, and we can't wait to see the positive impact they will have on our community!" 

– Carla Askonas, Executive Director of ChaTech
