"An opportunity like this never would have come available to me if I had not taken the program in the Sault College/LSSU International Division," Hornblower said. "My employer was very impressed with the fact that I not only had a degree in computer networking, but the hands-on knowledge, as well. This is the main reason that I was hired."

Scholarships

Franklin F. and Wanda L. Otis Award

The Franklin F. Otis Scholarship was established in memory of one of the charter faculty of the Sault Branch of Michigan College of Mining and Technology. Franklin spent 30 years as a mathematics professor at Lake State, including 23 years as chair of the Mathematics Department. He was the University’s first faculty athletic representative, serving 12 years during the early development of the Laker athletic program. He was instrumental in the development of the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) and the Central Collegiate Hockey Association (CCHA) leagues in which Lake State is a member today. In 1999, Franklin Otis was posthumously inducted to the LSSU Athletic Hall of Fame for his invaluable contributions to the Laker athletic program. His named scholarship recognizes the hard-working sophomore, junior or senior enrolled in mathematics or computer and mathematical science programs. The recipient must submit a letter of application to the faculty of the mathematics department and have a minimum 2.5 overall GPA and a minimum 3.0 grade point average in mathematics or computer science courses.

Gerald M. Samson Department of Mathematics Scholarship

Named in honor of LSSU faculty member Gerald Samson, this scholarship is awarded to a deserving computer and mathematical science major. The recipient is nominated and chosen by the mathematics faculty.

Mobile Software Development - Daifuku Webb, Osaka, Japan

Collin Baker

The project was to develop a mobile application to work on smart phones via Bluetooth to replace an old, bulky pendant used for moving autonomously-guided vehicles manually. The idea was not to be able to do it remotely, but simply eliminate the cost of the pendant. The project consisted of two stages: (1) Learn the Android Software Development Kit; (2) Develop a marketable application. The safe operation of the vehicle was critical.
