LSC’S JULIANNE WALSHAW RECEIVES NHAB SCHOLARSHIP
The New Hampshire Association of Broadcasters (NHAB) is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2011-2012 Student Broadcaster Scholarship. Awarded annually in the amount of $2,500, the scholarships are given to students pursuing a career in over-the-air broadcasting and are enrolled in a broadcast program at a two or four-year accredited school. This year, five Granite State residents were selected from over 75 applicants. Winners were chosen based on financial need, academic achievement, extracurricular and community involvement and an essay about their interest in broadcasting.
The recipients and their families were part of a brief presentation at WMUR TV on July 19, 2011. NHAB Vice President of Television and WMUR-TV General Manager Jeff Bartlett handed out scholarships to three-time recipient Erica Tomaszewski of Nashua, a student at Franklin Pierce University; Ty Tomassian of Wolfeboro, attending Liberty University; Angelina Bossone of Weare, attending the University of New Hampshire; and two-time recipients Julianne Walshaw from Franklin, a student at Lyndon State College, and Dylan Lovering of Wolfeboro, a student at High Point University.
In its third year, an additional scholarship fund was awarded in memory of the late Al Sprague, former president of the New Hampshire Association of Broadcasters. Awarded in the amount of $5,000, the scholarship was given to Elizabeth Faiella, four-time scholarship award winner from Northwood, who attends Dartmouth College.
