Boingo recently collaborated with our partners at the Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport (PHX) to support promising high-school students in the Phoenix area. Boingo awarded scholarships to several outstanding students at Metro Tech High School, a magnet high school with superior attendance and graduation rates. In recognition of their exceptional academic performance in technical career programs, the following students each received a $500 scholarship: Game and Mobile App Programming: David Hernandez Haro, Andres Lamas Martinez, Jorge Alvarez Valencia Engineering: Jesus Yanez In addition to the Metro Tech High School program, Boingo also recently awarded $2,000 in scholarships to Phoenix’s New Pathways for Youth and South Mountain High School. We’re proud to invest in tomorrow’s technology leaders, and honored to take part in Phoenix Sky Harbor’s community outreach work. Congrats to all of the scholarship recipients!
