A Student Who Wants to Share Stories that Inspire
As a student at Williamsville High School, Leanna Churchill asked the athletic director if she could take pictures of the school’s sporting events allowed her to network with people in local journalism. Now a communication major at UIS, Leanna works as an intern at Channel1450.com in Springfield. “I hope to one day share the stories that help to inspire others and report on events that will be remembered for a lifetime, especially in sports,” she said.
This year, Leanna has been encouraged in her career by receiving the Dara Drew Memorial Scholarship, named in honor of a member of the Saga Communications (Capitol Radio) Group. To honor someone you know with a named scholarship, go to Scholarship Giving.
