Arpineh Mullaney, Extech vice president spoke about the awards, “As part of the FLIR Systems family, Extech has been able to support a number of local programs with a Waltham-based giving program. We’re pleased to once again include our scholarship program at Waltham High School among the recipients. At Extech, we recognize the growing urgency for training young men and women in the United States to pursue studies in the electrical and electronics fields. We hope that our scholarships not only aid Mr. Benoit and Mr. Dennison in achieving their studies but also serve to recognize their success as students at Waltham High School. We wish them the best of luck in their studies and professional pursuits.” As part of the FLIR mission, FLIR believes that it is our responsibility to support our countries and our communities. In addition to our Corporate Charitable Giving Program, each of our locations supports various local community initiatives as well as contributes to national and international disaster relief efforts.
