“As a technology company, Mediacom understands how important it is to invest in future leaders like Caitlin Miller,” Thomas said. “I’m proud that my company supports talented local students with scholarship support, and we congratulate Caitlin on her accomplishments.”

This year marks the 16th consecutive year Mediacom has funded World Class Scholarships for students who live in areas served by the cable and broadband company. On average, approximately 1,200 students apply for the scholarships each year. Recipients must attend an accredited two-year or four-year college, university or technical school within the United States.

Mediacom plans to continue funding its World Class Scholarships in all areas where it provides digital cable and broadband services.
