CEDIA Education FoundationAs a seven-year CEDIA staff member, I am pleased to have recently taken on a new and exciting role in encouraging and promoting the professionalism and advancement of the residential technology industry.

Assuming responsibility for the operation of the CEDIA Education Foundation is an honor as it commemorates the legacy of an industry icon, past CEDIA Chairman Randy Vaughan.

The Randy Vaughan Memorial Scholarship was created to provide high-school seniors and college undergraduates the opportunity to receive financial assistance to begin or continue their post-secondary education in technology, electronic systems, or engineering. I can think of no better way to honor Randy, his family, and his memory than by working to ensure that his passion for education and professionalism remains alive.

Having worked with Randy on numerous CEDIA projects, I admired him for many reasons. He was a true industry leader whom I greatly respected.

The support of individuals, companies, and corporations in the home technology industry is the engine behind the success of the CEDIA Education Foundation. Please consider encouraging the next generation of home technology professionals with a contribution to the foundation in Randy’s honor. If you would like to make a donation, please contact me at dchic@cedia.org, or by calling 317-328-4336, extension 174.
