T his is the 15th summer for the ACC NCR Corporate Scholars Program. Since creating the Corporate Scholars Program in 2004, NCR has placed more than 100 students in internships.

The 2018 Scholars are:
  • Linh Adams, from the Antonin Scalia Law School at George Mason University, at Mirixa Corporation.
  • Lola Akere, from the University of Virginia School of Law, at BSI Group America Inc.
  • Daniel Alvarado, from the Antonin Scalia Law School at George Mason University, at General Dynamics Mission Systems.
  • Meg Clayton, from the Georgetown University Law Center, at Special Olympics, Inc.
  • Michael Essiaw, from the George Washington University School of Law, at Freddie Mac.

  • Glen Taylor, from the University of Virginia School of Law, at AECOM.
  • Titilope Titcombe, from the Howard University School of Law, at Amtrak.
Many of the Scholars attended the Spring into Summer Social at ACC HQ, where they were recognized and received a certificate. Brandon Fitzgerald was a part of the team that started the program and noted in his comments how fitting it was that NCR host the reception at ACC HQ, since as CEO of MCCA, Veta Richardson (now CEO of ACC) was the one who provided the seed money to start the program.  Fitzgerald also thanked former executive director and current senior director Ilene Reid for her years of leadership and support.
