EPHS senior Amore gains Communication degree scholarship

EAST PROVIDENCE — On June 26 in East Providence, Levi C. Maaia presented East Providence High School Class of 2020 graduate Megan Amore with a scholarship certificate and financial award to mitigate her college expenses. Amore will attend Manhattan College in the fall where she will study communication.

She is also the recipient of the 2020 Rhode Island Superintendent of the Year Scholarship and the 2020 Rhode Island Lt. Governor’s Leadership Award. She participated in many high school activities. Amore is the daughter of Rep. Gregg Amore (D-East Providence).

Maaia was a long-time resident of East Providence where he attended Myron J. Francis Elementary School in Rumford. He is the former vice president of cable provider Full Channel, Inc., in Warren and founder of a communications and media company.

“I’m delighted to see students like Megan Amore entering into a career in communication,” said Maaia. “We live in an exciting age of technology and it is vitally important to ensure that higher education is accessible to all students.”

Maaia earned a B.S. from the Boston University College of Communications, a M.A. in journalism from Emerson College and a Ph.D. in education at the University of California, Santa Barbara. His dissertation research focused on a maker-based, STEM education initiative in which he led high school students in designing and building hardware and software solutions in order to solve complex problems. He presently serves on the education committee for a NASA-sponsored STEM initiative to connect students with astronauts aboard the International Space Station via amateur radio.
