Irving, TX (June 10, 2020)—Founded four years ago, Sound Productions’ annual scholarship has helped students who are pursuing technical audiovisual degrees. The grant has returned once again, but this year, SoundPro CEO Joshua Curlett is using it to likewise highlight a crucial part of the company’s history by renaming it the Jeff Humphrey Technical Scholarship.
Since 2017, every year, the annual scholarship is awarded to one student in the amount of $2,500, but now the newly renamed subsidy will also serve as a tribute to the company’s late executive vice president, Jeff Humphrey. “This scholarship will honor one of our leaders who was very passionate about education,” said Curlett. “He constantly advocated for education and he’d be proud that we are investing in the next generation.”
SoundPro is also expanding the scholarship’s eligibility this year, so that students across the U.S. can apply, rather than the formerly regional program in which the scholarship was awarded. When asked about the modification, Curlett explained, “We wanted this opportunity to match our expansion into Wisconsin and other future metroplexes. It was the right time to extend our reach so that we can support youth across the nation, not just locally.”
