EWA Awards Vestal Scholarship

10/15/2018

The Enterprise Wireless Alliance (EWA) is pleased to announce that Jeremy Sklute, a student at Old Dominion University (ODU), will receive the EWA-Joseph B. Vestal Endowed Scholarship, which awards financial aid to a full-time student at ODU enrolled in Electrical Engineering Technology or Information Systems Management who intends to pursue a professional career in wireless applications or telecommunications. 

Mr. Sklute is interested in exploring how wireless applications send data, particularly the use of wireless communications in virtual and augmented reality. His interest in wireless data transfer developed while working on a project to redesign the wireless lighting system for the ODU Monarch Marching Band. 

“Mr. Sklute has a passion to solve real-world, emerging problems using wireless technologies,” said EWA President Mark Crosby. “The scholarship committee was impressed with his ingenuity and entrepreneurial spirit,” he continued.

Scholarship funds are raised through individual and corporate donations as well as through a silent auction held each year at the Wireless Leadership Summit, a conference for leaders of the private wireless industry. Learn more about the scholarship at EWA’s website.
