Kyra Hayes Uses Her Zycron Scholarship at Hampton University

Kyra Hayes *Hampton 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 Kyra Hayes of Hampton 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.

Kyra Hayes is a sophomore at Hampton University with a major in Business Management and a minor in Leadership Studies. Kyra seeks to complete coursework in the Audio Engineering discipline. She was selected as a William R. Harvey Leadership Institute Fellow, which provides an intensive, interactive undergraduate minor designed to develop entry-level leaders for the workplace and community who are competent, committed and ethical.  In the coming years, she plans to own her own record label, be a music producer, and also an audio engineer.  She has volunteered with organizations such as Youth About Business, 100 Black Men of Middle Tennessee, Second Harvest Food Bank and the Nashville Rescue Mission.

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

"My most memorable moment with BDPA is going to the career fair at the BDPA conference in Atlanta. I enjoyed speaking with representatives from various companies and learning more about how they make the world a better place. While I’ve only been a member for a short time, participating in BDPA has impacted me heavily. My ability to network beyond my current circle is an opportunity that I cherish the most. I was able to meet people from many places and learn about their background, career interests and family. Thank you for the opportunity."

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