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.
