An engineering student at the University of Arizona Yuma Learning Center has received an annual scholarship from Boeing Company. Aaron Remmy, an undergraduate student studying systems engineering, is one of four students awarded this year's Boeing Company Scholarship. The scholarships have been awarded annually since 2003 to students in engineering degree programs with a 3.0 grade point average (GPA) or higher.
Approximately 60 students are currently taking entry level college engineering courses in Yuma, says Tanya Hodges, the UA coordinator for academic programs at the Yuma. Other students awarded the Boeing Company Scholarship this year include electrical engineering undergraduate Cheyne Harvey, aerospace engineering senior Ryan Crompton, and civil engineering undergraduate Sonia Sarmiento, all at the UA College of Engineering.
