Two students have been awarded the first Mechatronics program scholarships offered at ESCC and sponsored by local businesses.
The Mechatronics program launched this fall at the Alabama Aviation College in Ozark. Mechatronics workers use a combination of mechanical, electrical, and computer/programming skills in a rapidly growing field.
The Rex Lumber Scholarship was awarded to James Leslie. Scholarship recipients who excel in the Mechatronics program may be eligible for a paid internship position within Rex Lumber Company.
The PRIDE Industries Scholarship was awarded to Slate Greene, and is a one-year scholarship awarded to individuals who are planning to enroll at ESCC.
