A West Virginia University P.I. Reed School of Journalism student has been named one of the Scripps Howard Foundation’s Top Ten Student Journalists for 2008 and will receive a $10,000 scholarship.
Elaine McMillion, a news-editorial senior from Charleston, was chosen from hundreds of students nationwide for the award.
“I’m honored to be chosen as one of the top 10 journalists in the country,” said McMillion, who was nominated by the School of Journalism. “It’s amazing that they would choose me. It just goes to show that you can accomplish your goals and dreams with hard work and determination if you just put your mind to it.”
