Thomas said he was looking forward to studying computer science at Arizona State University where he can learn to develop apps.
The AZEdNews Scholarship sponsored by The Brand Agency is a quarterly opportunity for a public high school senior to be awarded a one-time scholarship of $500 to apply toward their post-secondary education expenses at community colleges, trade schools, and universities.
Thomas said he hopes the apps he develops will help empower people.
“I don’t want to graduate college with student debt, because I don’t feel like it’s a good start to your life,” said Thomas, explaining how scholarship opportunities will help him. “You don’t want to be held back by hurdles.”
The scholarship will go towards Thomas’ education expenses. Thomas said he is applying to as many scholarships as he can to ease the financial burden of post-secondary education.
