FAIRBORN — Eight incoming engineering students have been awarded the latest round of scholarships as part of the Reynolds and Reynolds Leadership Scholars Program at Wright State University.

The students, who will enter Wright State’s College of Engineering and Computer Science in the fall, are high achieving high school graduates from around the state. The scholarship awards were announced April 27 during the college’s annual awards ceremony at the Student Union Apollo Room.

Since creating the Reynolds Scholars Program in 2009, Reynolds has provided $740,000 in scholarship funding awarded to 74 incoming students enrolled in computer science and computer engineering programs at Wright State. Each student receives a $10,000 award payable throughout the four years of their academic program.

Each new cohort of scholars is hosted by Reynolds and Reynolds for a tour of the Reynolds campus and the opportunity to meet employees in key leadership roles. The visit includes an in-depth look at Reynold’s unique Customer Innovation Center.

“The Reynolds and Reynolds Leadership Scholars Program has made it possible for the Wright State University College of Engineering and Computer Science to recruit top students from Raider Country,” said Pete Williams, director of development and external relations for the college. “The generosity and vision of the Reynolds and Reynolds Foundation has helped create a stronger college and future workforce for the Miami Valley.”

The 2018–19 Reynolds Scholars Cohort:

Hunter Ellis, computer engineering; Lakota West High School, West Chester

Alexis Frasher, computer engineering; Piketon High School, Piketon

Nathan Johns, computer science; Franklin High School, Franklin

Hayden Mankin, computer science; Hilliard Darby High School, Hilliard

Denton Perry, computer science; Pymatuning Valley High School, Andover

Christian Peters, computer science; Dayton Regional STEM School, Dayton

The Reynolds and Reynolds Company Foundation focuses on giving to programs in higher education to prepare quality students for key roles in regions where Reynolds has a significant presence.

As one of the oldest corporate citizens headquartered in the Dayton region, Reynolds’ support of the Leadership Scholars Program also dovetails with Wright State’s mission of transforming the communities the university serves.
