The Armstrong-Lepeska Science Marketing Scholarship, sponsored by isoSolutions, has been awarded to two more students.
This scholarship is granted to a student at Langara College in Vancouver. To highlight the importance of marketing and sales of high-technology, scientifically-intensive products, the scholarship awards a student in a scientific discipline who completes a course in marketing. This year, two students were funded: Mr. Hazhir Goodarznia and Mr. Adrian Wong.
The Armstrong-Lepeska Science Marketing Scholarship honors Brian Armstrong and Will Lepeska, who were pioneers in the new field of nuclear medicine and who, as scientists, focused their efforts on the marketing and sales of medical products. They played a critical role in bringing medical developments from the laboratory to the public and to common usage.
Mr. Hazhir Goodarznia is a first year student at Langara college studying computer science with co-op, planning to transfer into third year UBC (University of British Columbia) in 2018 to specialize in machine learning and artificial intelligence to earn a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science. After obtaining his B.Sc., he plans to join a startup or to create his own, or to work for a small, innovating company. He declared, “Thank you to isoSolutions for this generous scholarship; I am extremely lucky and grateful to be the recipient.”
Mr. Adrian Wong arrived at Langara with an interest in Biology and Physics but, after taking the marketing course, has been inspired to focus his studies on Business. He intends to continue at UBC to earn a Degree in Economics or Marketing and to pursue his dream of becoming a commercial pilot. He thanked isoSolutions by saying, “Your generosity has inspired me to help others and give back to the community.”
The managing director of isoSolutions, David Drummond, stated that “Meeting the young students who win this scholarship is encouraging, as they are starting careers that will undoubtedly be successful and impressive. isoSolutions is proud to support them.”
