Keystone College recently celebrated National Computer Science Education Week from December 6-12. Computer Science Education Week is celebrated each December to honor the memory of Grace Hopper, known as the first pioneer of computer programming, born on Dec. 9, 1906.
Keystone recently announced a new computer science scholarship program for high school students in seven local school districts. The new initiative will provide 20 scholarships at $6,700 each to graduating high school seniors in the Athens, Carbondale Area, Dunmore, Forest City, Lackawanna Trail, Mountain View school districts and the Lackawanna County Career Technology Center. The scholarship program is funded in part through a grant from the PA Department of Education’s SMART program and the Appalachian Regional Commission. Students from participating school districts may contact their guidance counselors for additional information or call Keystone College Apprenticeship Coordinator Caroline Millen, (570) 945-8165.
