More than two dozen high school students competed for scholarships to Wright State University at the Business Scholarship Challenge, hosted by the Raj Soin College of Business on Jan. 22.
This is the fourth year the college hosted the event, which provides an opportunity for faculty and staff members, alumni and business leaders to meet future students and promote the state-of-the-art facilities in Rike Hall and supportive faculty.
Participating students had the opportunity to compete in several challenges and meet with corporate advisers for a chance to win five $4,000 scholarships and five $1,000 scholarships.
“It was really cool,” said Afriyie Amoako, a senior at Gahanna Lincoln High School who plans to attend Wright State in the fall and major in marketing. “For them to take time with young students like me and just help us out, it says a lot about the program.”
The high school students and their parents were also able to learn about the college’s collaborations with the business community and alumni.
“It’s been well attended, and I couldn’t be more proud to be a Raider,” said Wesley Livesay, a double Wright State graduate who volunteered to meet with high school students and their families.
