Greetings! I was one of the high school seniors picked for last year’s scholarship, with my first semester finished, I just wanted to thank everyone who made this possible for me! I have fallen in love with journalism and even though I cannot take specialized courses like broadcast, print, etc. until my sophomore year, I felt as though I could still thank you all! So, thank you
