Recognizing that a highly skilled workforce is critical to growing Charleston’s knowledge economy, the Digital Corridor donates a portion of the proceeds from the annual iFive:K race to providing scholarships for students seeking education in a technology-related field. Each year, a portion of the iFive:K proceeds go to educate tomorrow’s innovators by providing scholarships, internships, public speaking engagements or other relevant workforce development initiatives through this scholarship fund. As a key sponsor of the iFive:K, eGroup was asked to help choose this year’s recipients.
The Charleston Digital Corridor Scholarship Award was presented on Monday, May 16th at 10am in the Atrium at ECPI College of Technology’s annual award ceremony. A student from both the Network Security and Electronics Engineering Technology programs were chosen by eGroup and fellow Digital Corridor Member Companies SLANT Media and BoomTown to receive this honor based on academic performance, attendance and a written essay.
Congratulations to scholarship recipients Wesley Boothe (Computer Information Systems) and Eric Bell (Electrical Engineering Technology) !
eGroup is all about offering opportunities to improve the health of its employees. One of the new things we will be doing, beginning in Janaury, is a short group run/jog over lunch. Beginning Wednesday 1/5/2011 and on all Wednesdays in January, we will meet at 12:15 PM in front of Primetime Fitness on Sullivan’s Island for a relatively short run (jog/walk) of about 2 miles.
Non eGroup employees are welcome too! We would love to have friends/customers/associates join us! Email Ben Gaddy at ben.gaddy@eGroup-us.com to join, or feel free to just show up!
