Baldwin is a 1999 graduate of Quitman High School currently enrolled in his third semester in the electronics technology program at MCC. He is a Work-Based Learning student at Peavey Electronics, has a GPA of 3.68 and plans to pursue an associate's degree in applied science.
Baldwin was nominated for the award by his electronics technology instructors, Walter Hammick and Kenneth Carroll.
Candidates for the scholarship must be enrolled in the Work-Based Learning program and maintain a B average. A resume and application are also required.
