The Enterprise Wireless Alliance (EWA) announced that Akeyvianna Rembert, a senior at Old Dominion University (ODU), will receive the EWA-Joseph B. Vestal Endowed Scholarship. The scholarship awards financial aid to a full-time student at ODU enrolled in electrical engineering technology or information systems management who intends to pursue a professional career in wireless applications or telecommunications.

Rembert is the first female candidate to receive the scholarship, which honors Joseph B. Vestal, a distinguished alumni of ODU (class of 1960), for his innovation and entrepreneurial contributions to the wireless industry. Rembert intends to pursue a career in cybersecurity.

“This scholarship helps attract young professionals like Ms. Rembert to the wireless industry as well as to the many opportunities available,” said EWA President Mark Crosby. “The scholarship committee was impressed with Ms. Rembert’s interest in health-related cybersecurity and wishes her all success.”

Scholarship funds are raised through individual and corporate donations, as well as through a silent auction held each year at the Wireless Leadership Summit, a conference for leaders of the private wireless industry. The 2017 auction raised $5,000, bringing the endowment to $70,000.
