Pellissippi State awarded grant promoting women in IT

Pellissippi State Community College has won a $1,000 grant to help encourage women in computing and information technology programs.

“In some of my computer science and information technology classes, I’m the only woman or in the minority among mostly male students,” said Christy Watson, a Computer Science and Information Technology student and author of the application for the Symantec Student Seed Fund grant.

The grant—administered through the National Center for Women and IT Academic Alliance—will be awarded to the college’s student chapter of the Association of Information Technology Professionals. Watson is the Pellissippi State AITP’s vice president and secretary.
