NSU Mass Communications associate professor Dana Eversole and John Gyllin, Director of the NSU Foundation, pose with senior Eric Covey, recepient of a $1,000 Tulsa Press Club scholarship.
Eric Covey, a senior at Northeastern State University, was recently announced as the recipient of a $1,000 scholarship from the Tulsa Press Club to continue his mass communications studies.
"In October, students are thinking of many things – upcoming festivals, midterms, homecoming, and the impending pressure to successfully turn in financial aid and scholarship applications," Covey said. "I am glad I was diligent in turning in my homework and applications on time, and I am deeply grateful and sincerely thankful for the generous scholarship the Tulsa Press Club has given me.”
The scholarship for students majoring in mass communications was a one-time scholarship that Eric will use for the Fall semester.
Covey, a senior at the Tahlequah campus, graduates after the Spring 2010 term. He is a weekly featured writer for The Northeastern campus newspaper and commutes from Bixby three times a week to attend classes.
He said the trip every week is worth it.
“As I am approaching the end of the road here at NSU, it is amazing to see the doors that are beginning to open for me,” Covey said.
