SALT LAKE CITY – May 9, 2019 – RizePoint, an industry leader in quality management software, is pleased to announce the award of 20 STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) scholarships to students in grades 5 through 10 in the Canyons School District.
To help children explore their interests and abilities in STEM fields, each scholarship finances a slot at a summer camp that focuses on the STEM subject that most interests each student individually.
“I believe that helping youth in our community learn about science and technology will make our collective future in the Salt Lake Valley better and brighter than ever before,” said Frank Maylett, President and CEO of RizePoint. “We are dedicated to doing our part in contributing to this future and hope to grow our scholarship program in the coming years.”
The 20 scholarship winners and their families were invited to an awards ceremony with the entire RizePoint staff in Cottonwood Heights on April 11, 2019. The afternoon was filled with palpable anticipation and enthusiasm as each student received special recognition with their awarded scholarship.
“It was incredibly fun emceeing this event and interacting with each winner,” said Chris Heaton, CFO at RizePoint. “I was inspired just watching the students get excited about going to a STEM camp this summer.”
In order to win a scholarship, students were required to complete an application, including an essay about their goals and why they think they deserved the scholarship. A committee of six RizePoint and three Canyons employees read and discussed 47 applications, using three criteria during the process to choose the recipients: creativity, ambition, and need. The committee was so impressed with the caliber of applicants that RizePoint employees donated personal money to the scholarship program to bring the total of scholarships awarded to 20.
