IT Students Win Best in Show

The IT student team that earned 1st place in the Charleston Defense Contractors Association Student Mobile App Competition also won Best in Show with their Allerg-Ease app, which allows people with food sensitivities to identify safe menu options at six popular restaurant chains.  While the competition winners are determined by judges, all attendees at the meeting vote on Best in Show.  The team received cash awards for its 1st Place and Best in Show wins.  The competition sponsor also donated $1,250 to the IT department, which at the students’ request, will be used to fund an Allerg-Ease scholarship.  We are very proud of the team’s hard work and dedication.  Pictured from left to right: Shayne Moore, Leslie Dykes, Ryan Callahan, Andre Coleman and James Riley.
