2015 Bixby Residential NHHS Media Scholarships Awarded

This is the 5th year I have awarded this scholarship, and my own kids are wondering if I’ll offer up a $1,000 homework assignment to them.  Maybe this wasn’t the best idea, I’m thinking.  The genesis for these scholarships lies in my own love of journalism, visual imagery, and story telling.  I wanted to reward students for expressing their creativity and challenging their intellect through writing, photography, and film.  And again this year, the winners impressed me.
