By Dawn Worde, Computer Information Systems (CIS) Instructor

Gamers unite as WCS Career Prep Center (CPC). Students compete in the 2nd annual “League of Legends” tournament to be held Friday, December 15, 2017. Students will compete for a chance to play at Lawrence Technology University’s (LTU) E-Sports gamers tournament which will take place in March of 2018.

“This is an amazing opportunity for the students at CPC to showcase how technology not only allows them to be creative and problem solve, but it also empowers them to demonstrate their vast knowledge and skill in the areas of design, math, science and engineering”, according to Gina Asaro, CPC counselor.

The top team will advance to the LTU E-Sports Competition where members who place in the competition will be awarded individual scholarships to attend Lawrence Technology University for a maximum of 4 years.

Sterling Height High School junior and CIS student, Anthony Salem added, “you never think that playing League of Legends at home will give you a chance to win a scholarship, doing something you love”. The tournament will be hosted by the Computer Information Systems class at CPC.
