A Boca Raton tech company will be assisting five students to promote diversity in the tech industry. As reported by WPTV News, the company MediaOps partnered with the school Boca Code to offer scholarships for students. The scholarship, the Engineer For Change, was created with the intention to assist local companies and help students afford software engineering courses. 

Scholarship recipients are happy to receive the scholarship and work in the area of tech. “Impact, impact, I just want to show kids there is more,” said Jarue Johnson, a recipient of the scholarship.
