Johnson & Johnson Scholar: Adrian Ables (DePauw University)

BDPA Education and Technology Foundation joins with Johnson & Johnson to award $20,000 in college scholarships this month. The Johnson & Johnson Scholarship for BDPA Students has been awarded to DePauw University senior Adrian Ables.

Adrian Ables
Adrian was born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. He has lived with his family in Oklahoma for most of his life. His passion has always been soccer ever since he was a little kid. He loves reaching out to his community and teaching kids how to play soccer. He teaches young people that they need to work hard on and off the field. Adrian is the captain of the soccer team at DePauw University.
Adrian wrote, "Being a student athlete has shown me the benefits of persevering through rough times along with bringing me into contact with a wide range of people. Furthermore, I am pursuing a major in computer science at my university as well. The IT area fascinates me and I love discussing new ideas or projects. I want to pursue a career in the administrative side of IT."
Adrian drove to Cincinnati earlier this summer to participate in the BDPA Midwest Regional IT Showcase. He plans to compete in the 13th annual BDPA IT Showcase in Washington DC later this month. His topic focuses on social media and how it can positively impact the workplace infrastructure, communication, and environment.

One major concept Adrian lives his life by is “The little things are the big things.” As a leader and a role model Adrian is willing to truly listen to those around them along with making decisions that affect a group as a whole. Adrian seeks to be the best man he can be, by helping as many people as he can.

Congratulations to Adrian for earning this $2,500 college scholarship from Johnson & Johnson!
