NASHVILLE, Tenn., May 29, 2019—Golden Spiral, an integrated marketing agency serving B2B technology clients, has donated $5,000 to Women in Technology of Tennessee (WiTT), a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating new possibilities for women to succeed in technology and science careers. The donation will be part of WiTT’s contribution to eight scholarships for students at Nashville Software School, a community-funded nonprofit that provides intensive training and project-based learning programs in software development.
“At Golden Spiral we believe it’s important to support our local tech community, and we’re proud to partner with WiTT for this strategic investment in workforce development,” said John Farkas, CEO of Golden Spiral. “This scholarship fund will help students cover schooling costs and be more accessible for employment opportunities as they establish their tech careers. We look forward to continue providing this support through our involvement with WiTT in 2019.”
Golden Spiral’s donation to WiTT is part of a $19,000 fund with contributions from WiTT and other NSS sponsors. This money will be given to seven Opportunity Tuition students—who received partial scholarships upon their program acceptance—as a credit toward their remaining tuition balances. Additionally, some funds will go toward laptop costs for the students. Scholarship recipients include:
- Natasha Cox
- Leah Hoefling
- Mehret Kulala
- Fevan Mulugeta
- Ripal Patel
- Jessica Rodgers
- Emily Venturino
- April Watson
“We are thrilled to contribute to the NSS scholarship fund and are appreciative of Golden Spiral’s partnership in this effort,” said Marla Lamont at WiTT. “The scholarships align with our organization’s mission to not only promote women in technology, but to equip them for successful careers in their chosen fields. We look forward to seeing what the future holds for these scholarship recipients.”
