75 Scholars enjoy pizza party, talk journalism

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

The winners of the 75 Scholars program were treated to a celebratory pizza dinner on Thursday evening on the opening day of the JEA/NSPA Convention here in San Antonio.

After the students were given their 75 Scholars T-shirts, they were welcomed with a greeting from NSPA Executive Director Logan Aimone and Steve Blair, Walsworth’s Executive Vice President of Yearbook Sales. Then it was time for pizza and mingling with the scholarship winners from other schools.

We got to speak with a few more of the winners and get their thoughts on the first day at the convention. You can see it in the video below.
