Metro Wire Staff

Mid-State Technical College has awarded a $500 scholarship to a SPASH sophomore.

Brett Shuda was presented with the scholarship on March 6 following its Feb. 20 Program Showcase.

Shuda was selected by random drawing to receive the scholarship from among over 400 high school sophomores who attended the event on the school’s campus in Wisconsin Rapids.

Program Showcase is a popular annual event bringing area high school students for hands-on demonstrations of many of Mid-State’s 60-plus programs, and to learn about the school’s dual credit opportunities and applying for scholarships.

Students from Adams-Friendship High School and SPASH attended this year’s event.

The scholarship may be applied to tuition at Mid-State any time through Shuda’s graduation year.

Shuda is currently active in SPASH’s Computer Science Club, according to a news release from Mid-State, and says he enjoys “anything I.T. related”.

He plans to study computer science after high school.
