Our members work in various industries, including software development, medical, insurance, engineering, telephony, and scientific research. Although we work in different technical areas, our common cause is making technical information accessible for those who need it. Whether we are writing user manuals, designing Web sites, developing online help, or editing a scientific article, we try to use the basic tools of communication--language, design, and technology--to help the audience use the information in the most advantageous way. The David C. Leonard Scholarship for Technical Communication was created to honor Dr. David C. Leonard, a long-time member of the STC Atlanta chapter. Dr. Leonard was instrumental in revitalizing the Atlanta chapter in the early 1980’s. He was chapter president in 1992-93. His innovative approach to technical communication kept him on the cutting-edge of technology. His belief that technical communication was an important field of study lead to a life of teaching and championing technical communication as a profession worthy to be pursued by students in colleges and universities.
