The Enterprise Wireless Alliance (EWA) selected Jerel Miles to receive the EWA-Joseph B. Vestal Scholarship. The scholarship awards financial aid to a full-time student at Old Dominion University (ODU) enrolled in Electrical Engineering Technology or Information Systems Management who intends to pursue a professional career in wireless applications or telecommunications.

EWA established the scholarship at ODU to honor alumnus Joseph B. Vestal, class of 1960, who was named a distinguished alumni for his innovation and entrepreneurial contributions to the wireless industry.

“The wireless industry, like many other industries in the United States, is facing a possible shortage of skilled talent,” said EWA President and Chief Executive Officer Mark Crosby. “For that reason, and to honor a former board member, EWA established the Vestal scholarship. The scholarship is funded by the entire wireless industry, and we are grateful for that support.”

Funds for the scholarship come in part from donations to a silent auction held each year at the Wireless Leadership Summit.
