Scholarship Photo Contest
As most of ya know, I took a terrible fall 2 years ago and shattered both of my wrists. Because the injury was so bad, the doctors say my trucking career is over. (I can’t pull the pins to drop trailers or slide tandems.) So, I am going to college full time (carrying 16 a semester). I just finished my 2nd semester and have a 3.4GPA. I think I am doing good for a middle-aged woman. My focus is in radio and photojournalism. During the semester I host two shows on the USM (University of Southern Mississippi) campus radio station WUSM, Southern Miss Today and Gear Jammin Radio. Southern Miss Today airs at noon weekdays while school is in. It is a news/interview/what’s happening show. (I always have a segment about the troops.) Gear Jammin Radio airs Saturdays from 2 to 4 pm and features trucking/road music. (Once a month I have a salute the troops segment.)
My workman’s comp case is over and I am trying to survive. The Mississippi Vocational Rehab Department is paying for tuition and books, but I sill have to survive. I am putting in for many scholarships to help pay the bills. Through one of the many scholarship sites, I found a photo contest. I have entered one of the pictures that I took when the MS PGR did the send off for the local National Guard unit back in March. The prize is an $1800 scholarship, but I need help to win. The number of votes will not make me win this contest, but it will help. I have to stay ranked in the top 200 to have a chance of winning. Right now I have been bouncing from 72 to 81. You can vote once every 12 hours. So please click the vote button below and help me win this scholarship. We have till February 9, 2011 11:30 pm to get me to number one. Please take the time to vote and vote often. Thank you!
