Recipient Logan Woock plans to continue studying computer science at the University of Minnesota-Duluth (UMD)
St. Paul, Minn.—May 16th, 2017—Logan Woock has been selected by the Intertech Foundation board of directors to receive its $2,500 STEM scholarship for use in 2017-18. Woock studies computer science at UMD and seeks to grow and challenge himself as a developer.
“I am motivated to participate in interesting and purposeful new activities, some of which get me out of my ‘comfort zone,’" says Woock in his winning scholarship application.
Intertech Foundation President Tom Salonek said Logan’s application stood out for many of the same reasons they choose to hire certain people over other equally technically qualified applicants at Intertech.
"Not only is he whip smart, he understands the importance of continually learning and growing in new ways. He’s also well-rounded in his interests and believes in giving back.” Salonek said.
