Expressing her excitement, Anderson remarked, "Being chosen as a 2024 Entergy scholarship recipient signifies the culmination of my hard work and dedication, promising numerous opportunities for personal and academic growth in the future."
Michael Rhymes, Entergy's Vice President and Chief Information Officer, highlighted the program's impact, stating, "By supporting students in our community, we are not only nurturing a local technology workforce but also transforming lives."
