Union Wireless recently announced a five-year scholarship agreement with Utah State University supporting undergraduate students enrolled in the College of Engineering. Two scholarship awards, which are not restricted to a specific department within the College of Engineering, will be awarded once each fall over the next five years.

Frank Draney, Human Resources Director for Union Wireless, said “We have hired both full-time and summer engineering interns from Utah State University to work at our Headquarters in Mountain View, Wyoming.  The students bring with them a solid engineering foundation. We feel it is now fitting for Union Wireless to broaden its partnership with the university through this scholarship program.  While Union Wireless is headquartered in Wyoming, the company provides service in parts of Utah, Idaho and Colorado.  We feel it is appropriate that we continue to support the educational development of students pursuing technical degrees who desire excellent career opportunities allowing them to work and live in the Rocky Mountain region.”

Scott Hinton, Dean of USU’s College of Engineering, accepted the Union Wireless scholarship donation from Eric Woody (UTC’s Chief Technology and Operations Officer) on Wednesday, February 27th during a recent career fair.  While accepting the donation Dean Hinton commented: “We are grateful to Union Wireless for the scholarships they have given to support our students.  This is a positive affirmation by Union Wireless that they feel our students are graduating with the education and skills that will make them great employees.  We are very thankful for this support.”
