NCTC Chief Executive Officer Nancy White and Board Chairman Glen Hardcastle present Ashlyn Rittenberry with a $2,500 scholarship from the Foundation for Rural Services (FRS), sponsored by NCTC.  Ashlyn is the daughter of Nicky and Amanda Rittenberry. 

The Foundation for Rural Service is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Arlington, Va., that serves rural communities across the United States. Established in 1994 by NTCA—the Rural Broadband Association, FRS educates the public about the benefits of a nationwide telecommunications network and promotes rural connectivity as an essential link in this network. FRS believes that rural communities—regardless of their size or location—deserve the same connection to the world as do residents of urban areas.
