Texas A&M International University student Mary A. Morrison has been named recipient of the 1997 Association of Information Technology Professionals (AITP) Scholarship.

Morrison received the $500 scholarship and a plaque during a brief ceremony held at the University recently. The ceremony was attended by her classmates, faculty from the University's College of Business Administration, and Kevin Jetton, AITP Region 3 liaison and a member of the AITP board of directors.
