(Lancaster, PA) – Clark Associates, Inc. recently awarded $5,000 scholarships to two outstanding local students involved in the Pennsylvania Technology Student Association (PA-TSA).
The first scholarship was awarded to Austen M. Feister of Narvon, Pa. Feister, a senior at Pequea Valley High School, plans to attend the Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology to study Cabinet Making and Wood Technologies.
Receiving the second $5,000 scholarship was Jessica Butts of Mechanicsburg, Pa. Butts is a senior at Cedar Cliff High School, and plans to attend Millersville University to major in Computer Science.
All active PA-TSA Seniors in Region 2 (Lancaster and Lebanon Counties, plus a portion of Chester County) who are pursuing post-secondary education were eligible for the first $5,000 scholarship. The second $5,000 scholarship was open to all active PA-TSA Seniors from any Pennsylvania chapter who are pursuing post-secondary education. Eligible students completed an application and questionnaire; finalists participated in in-person interviews at the TSA's state conference on April 19th, held in Seven Springs, Pa.
Many of the qualities that Clark looks for in prospective employees are learned through participation in PA-TSA's cutting-edge atmosphere, which fosters the development of advanced technology and leadership skills. As Clark continues to experience rapid growth, we attribute this success to the hard work of our dedicated employees, as well as our willingness to utilize innovative technologies to streamline operations and to expand into new markets. PA-TSA students graduate with an understanding of what it means “to work hard in order to accomplish a goal,” the same simple guiding principle that has made Clark the company it is today.
