75 Scholars winners excited to arrive at JEA/NSPA convention

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

As the exhibit floor opened this afternoon here in San Antonio, we were able to track down some of the 75 Scholars winners from Marshall High School (right here in San Antonio) and from Akins High School in Austin.

All awesome kids, and all very fired up to be here at the convention this week. You can hear what a few of them had to say in the video below.

Up next later this evening is a pizza party for the 75 Scholars. With any luck, we’ll have video from there as well. Stay tuned!
