Three Ivy Tech Community College Northeast students have been awarded a scholarship from the #IAmTheI project. The #IAmTheI project invited students to take a photo of themselves with the green “vy” statue in front of the Student Life Center on North Campus; share the photo on Twitter, Facebook, and/or Instagram; and write “#IAmTheI because …”, sharing why they are the “I” in “Ivy Tech.” The photos with the most likes, shares, and comments earned the student one of three scholarships.
The students to receive the scholarships are
- Karina Vazquez, a general studies student from Fort Wayne who earned first place, a $1,000 scholarship; #IAmTheI because I want to inspire future generations to pursue their dreams regardless of how big they are.
- Nick Jones, a visual communications student from Butler who earned second place, a $500 scholarship; #IAmTheI because I’m hoping to have my Visual Communications degree next year in order to help pursue my passion for film production.
- Danielle Lambert, a dual credit student from Bluffton who earned third place, a $250 scholarship; #IAmTheI because I can’t wait to take college classes still being considered a high school senior. I am excited to have such a great school so close to home. Ivy Tech will help me achieve my career goals and further my education!
The project received more than two dozen entries, earning Ivy Tech Northeast nearly 2,000 interactions through students’ photos.
