Klein Cain Student Receives Amazon Package of a Lifetime
This Klein Cain senior got the Amazon package of a lifetime!
Klein Cain senior J.T. Phillips is heading to Amazon!
During his computer science class, J.T. was surprised with the news that he had been awarded the Amazon Future Engineers scholarship and a summer internship at the company.
The scholarship offered to J.T. is worth $40,000, which will be distributed over his four years in undergraduate school.
He will spend the summer before college working with Amazon as a paid intern to jumpstart his future career.
“This is a lot of money going toward my college education, and I’m blessed to have it, especially because I’ll be attending an out-of-state school,” J.T. said.
For J.T., this scholarship and internship are just the beginning.
He plans on attending the University of North Carolina to pursue a degree in Bio-Engineering in the fall.
“It has always been my dream to start my own science-tech company during college, and a bioengineering degree provides endless resources and connections to accomplish that,” J.T. said.
“This pries open the can of opportunities even more for me and brings me closer to the innovation that I not only want to achieve but also be around.”
J.T. is an outstanding student who also shines outside of the classroom.
Just to name a few of his many accomplishments, J.T. is a three-time DECA State Finalist, USA Fencing All-American, and AP Scholar who has held the position of Class President twice.
