The National Electrical Contractors Association awarded its annual scholarship to five Youngstown State University students.
Jason Nutt, Michael Currao, Kalen Wallace, Ethan Parks and David Wright were each awarded a $1,000 scholarship. NECA’s national and local chapters are dedicated to advancing the electrical construction industry through research and education.
“We’re supporters of the university, and we would really like to see students do well,” said Tom Travers, the executive director of the Mahoning Valley’s NECA chapter and a member of NECA’s scholarship committee. Parks, a YSU sophomore and the vice president of NECA’s student chapter, said he appreciates NECA’s collaboration with YSU.
“Travers and the rest of the members are a great help,” Parks said.
“They are all in the engineering field every day. They’re able to give us strong critiques and help us develop plans and ideas.”
NECA also donated $10,000 to strengthen forthcoming contributions.
