Danielle Haik * Tennessee State University
BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) is proud to announce that Zycron awarded a $2,500 college scholarship to five (5) students. One of those students is Danielle Haik of Tennessee State University.  Zycron is an international information technology services and solutions firm headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee. Since 1991, Zycron has offered IT solutions to a broad client base, and today is the primary provider for numerous Fortune 500 companies.

Danielle is a senior Computer Science student attending Tennessee State University.  She is a mentor for the Tennessee Louis Stocks Alliance for Minority Participation which promotes the retention of minority students in STEM majors. During the past summer, she worked as an intern for Deloitte in the Global Technology Services Department. Danielle is a DHS Scholar and conducts Big Data Research for the Department of Homeland Security.  She plans to become a project manager. In her spare time, Danielle enjoys playing and watching soccer and golf.

Danielle recently joined our BDPA Middle Tennessee chapter. When asked to share her thoughts on being a Zycron scholar, Danielle wrote,

"I am very appreciate of the BDPA and Zycron for their support of me in my scholastic endeavors. BDPA has exposed me to various professional development opportunities. During my internship with Deloitte this summer, I officially joined the Middle Tennessee Chapter of the BDPA. I attended BDPA events outside of work such as the Zycron dinner event this past June. The members of BDPA that I have interacted with have been very encouraging of my career, aspirations and general goals."

BDPA is blessed to have such a young and talented student on board as winner of the Zycron Scholarship. We look forward to supporting Danielle's career as she seeks to advance in the technology industry!
