The Scholarship Committee is pleased to announce that STC Chicago has awarded a $1000 scholarship and STC student membership to Bernadette Cash.
Bernadette is an Illinois resident and graduate student in the Technical Communication program at Minnesota State University, Mankato. She recently completed an internship as a Content & Copywriter for the Mental Health Association of Greater Chicago and is currently serving as the Watercooler Chat Manager for the STC Technical Editing SIG.
What attracted the judges to Bernadette’s application was her solid mastery of the principles of technical communication. Her samples were well-organized and visualizing interesting, and made effective usage of navigational cues. Bernadette has also demonstrated her commitment to a career in technical communication through her studies, volunteering, and internships.
Congratulations to Bernadette.
