It is with particularly great pleasure that we announce this year’s 2021 PCS STEM Scholarship recipient, referred through the Technology Access Foundation. Yuliya Pruzhanskaya demonstrated her dedication toward pursuing a mechanical engineering degree at University of Washington, Seattle. We were impressed with her excitement for STEM studies and for her dedication to her family and community.

In December 2017, PCS opened our third office in Portland to better serve our clients in Oregon and Southwest Washington. Three years later, 2020 brought some unexpected obstacles, but with early and effective work-from-home strategies and well-connected office resources, our team hasn’t missed a beat. Despite the challenges, we have plenty of successes to share.
