Scholarship Winners Announced for Represent Tech’s Latest Award Cycle

Tech Elevator’s Scholarship program advocating for underrepresented communities in tech announced its latest award recipients. Among the recipients, Pittsburgh resident, Michelle Hanna was selected for the scholarship.

To date, Tech Elevator, a Stride, Inc. company (NYSE: LRN) and a leading technology training provider helping individuals and companies gain in-demand skills for the modern workforce, has committed over $1M to establish the Represent Tech program and provide access to underrepresented groups with a quality tech education and a future in the world of technology.

“Growing up in an environment where money was always tight, I had nobody to rely on except myself when it came to schooling expenses,” said Michelle Hanna, a Represent Tech Scholarship recipient. “When I received the phone call notifying me of the result, I was about to jump up in excitement whilst also wanting to just sit down and let out a huge sigh of relief. It was as if I had received a sign letting me know that starting a career in tech was the right choice. I am immensely grateful and honored for this opportunity, and my family is excitedly cheering me on as I embark on a new journey in a new career path.”

Hanna previously worked as a front office manager at a hotel property. With her tech education, she hopes to work in software development in the food service industry working on applications to improve the customer experience.

Tech Elevator is proud to offer scholarships to historically underrepresented groups creating greater accessibility to careers in technology. To be eligible, a candidate must be accepted and enrolled in an upcoming cohort, be job seeking, and eligible to work in the United States.
