The Radio Club of America (RCA) Announces New
Carole Perry RCA Young Professional Award
RCA (the Radio Club of America, the world's most prestigious society of wireless professionals), announced at its annual Awards Banquet in Atlanta a major new award: The Carole Perry RCA Young Professional Award.
This award is for those students, previously in middle or high school, who became Carole Perry RCA Young Achievers and presented at RCA's annual Technical Symposium. If they then go on to college, or go into the wireless industry, and subsequently present again at an RCA Technical Symposium, they will be nominated to receive this award.
RCA President John Facella said "The objective of this award is to encourage middle and high school students to go on to study wireless related subjects, and then work in the wireless industry. It is well known that there is a major shortage of qualified people to work in the wireless industry. This is one way to help alleviate that shortage."
RCA President-elect David Bart said "RCA Director and Fellow Carole Perry for over 30 years has been a consistent positive force within RCA to get middle and high school students interested in STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) and wireless subjects. This award in her name will properly commemorate all of Carole's work and provide an incentive for these students to stay in wireless."
Nominations for awardees to these and all the other RCA awards can be made in the spring of 2023. A list of all the wireless industry awards and the nomination forms can be found at https://www.radioclubofamerica.org/Awards-Fellows.
Founded in 1909, RCA (the Radio Club of America) is the most prestigious group of wireless communications professionals in the world. Members are dedicated to the wireless art and science for the betterment of society. RCA is a 501(c)(3) organization. For more information, visit www.radioclubofamerica.org.
