SMTA Seeks Donations for Hutchins Grant and Stromberg Scholarship


Reading time ( words)

The SMTA is seeking donations for the Charles Hutchins Grant and JoAnn Stromberg Student Leader Scholarship for the upcoming year. Both of these awards are made possible exclusively through donations by businesses and individuals.

The Hutchins Grant has been awarded annually since 1998 to a graduate-level student pursuing a degree and working on thesis research in electronics manufacturing, electronics packaging, or a related field. Similarly, the Stromberg Scholarship is awarded annually to a student pursuing a degree in electronics (or surrounding industry) and actively involved in the SMTA. Recipients are able to use the funds for the purchase of technical books and research materials, for participation in conferences related to electronics assembly and packaging, and for living expenses if necessary.

Through the generosity shown by dedicated members and chapters, the SMTA is able to continue its mission and help to inspire the next generation of engineers. Every gift helps and donations of all sizes are welcome – whether it's a one-time gift or a monthly contribution.

This year’s theme was “Texas is Open for Business,” and the turnout seemed to reflect that observation. We saw a steady stream of attendees arriving throughout the day, and most of them stayed through the barbecue lunch and happy hour. Dallas SMTA Expo and Tech Forum is becoming much more than a regional show. I met exhibitors and attendees from around the southwest, and a few from across the country. The Plano Event Center has a configurable layout that can accommodate events of all sizes, and next year’s show is expected to be even bigger.

He asked him to discuss what his group has on hand for the Dallas SMTA Expo. As Gary says, “Texas is open for business.”
