Bryce Ethridge, a rising senior at Valdosta State University, is the 2018 CrossRoadsNews Foundation Scholar.
Ethridge, who is majoring in journalism, received a $1,500 scholarship from CRN Foundation President Deborah Jackson and CrossRoadsNews Publisher Jennifer Parker on July 21.
The check presentation took place during CrossRoadsNews' 2018 Family & Back-to-School Expo at the Mall at Stonecrest.
Ethridge, who interned at the newspaper this summer, is a 2015 graduate of Southwest DeKalb High School.
He said that he grew up with the newspaper and when he was required to intern at a newspaper for class credit, he knew he wanted to do it with CrossRoadsNews.
The annual scholarship is open to DeKalb high school seniors and graduates pursuing studies in communications – journalism, graphic design, web design, photography or advertising – at accredited two- or four-year colleges or universities. It is not restricted to attendance at a Georgia college or university.
CrossRoadsNews owners Jennifer and Curtis Parker established the CrossRoadsNews Foundation in 2005 to support communication needs throughout DeKalb.
