Bryan Hoch Scholarship Winner

To Whom it May Concern,

Thank you so much for your generous scholarship! Thanks to the aid of scholarship funds, I am

able to go to school to learn more about the black magic that goes into electronics. I will be the first of

my family, as well as one of a few of my large extended family, to attend an institution of higher

learning. Throughout my life, I have been interested in electronics, computers, woodworking, and

pretty much anything I can design and make. Through connections I have made in the Amateur radio

hobby and experimenting with the equipment, I have settled on something that really clicked for me,

electronics, and I realized that I want to continue working with electronics as an electrical engineer. Of

course, jobs in this career field almost always require the education and degree that comes with

attending a university for engineering, and attending a university is no small financial endeavor. So, I

am excited to attend a local campus of Penn State in pursuit of my degree as one of the class of 2023.

I am forever indebted to the generous people that have aided my journey to become a better and more educated


Thank you!
