Mt. Laurel resident Sydney Dinetz receives $5,000 scholarship from the Mid-Atlantic CIO Forum


The Mid-Atlantic CIO Forum has awarded five Towson University students $25,000 in scholarships for the spring 2016 academic term.

Mt. Laurel resident Sydney Dinetz is one of those recipients, in which she received a $5,000 scholarship from the CIO Forum.

Her award will go toward her expenses at Towson University. Dinetz is one of five recipients selected for their academic achievements and leadership initiative.

Dinetz is a second-time recipient of the scholarship and carries a combined major of e-Business and Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing, as well as a minor in Jewish Studies. She is interested pursuing a career in digital marketing, and currently works as a Marketing and Communications Intern at Textron Systems where she assists in the creation and planning of their social media strategy.

Dinetz is a member of the Honors College.

“The Towson University student applicants for the Mid-Atlantic CIO Forum Scholarship not only show academic achievement, but show the initiative to be the next group of IT leadership,” said Tom Lonegro, CIO Forum member who served on the scholarship selection committee. “Again this year we had an excellent group of candidates. It was very difficult to select a top five.”

In addition to providing scholarships, the CIO Forum’s members look forward to being actively engaged with the students. The award recipients will have the opportunity to participate in Mid-Atlantic CIO Forum meetings during the spring term.
