“What does SAABJ mean to me? –The difference between having a map versus none when traveling an unknown path. They took interest in me when no one else did and have mentored and developed me as person. I feel like I will be so much more  prepared me to enter the workforce when I graduate.”

– SAABJ Scholarship Winner Alexia Hall

“The scholarship not only gave me the opportunity to continue my education, but the recognition gave me the confidence to say that I am indeed pursuing the right field of work. I am humbled by SAABJ and grateful for not only the scholarship, but the luminaries of journalism who  recognized my skill and my passion to change the world through media.”

– SAABJ Scholarship Winner Jesse Salazar
