Morgan Jenkins, a student at Lee’s Summit High School, received the Sarah Ellen Campbell Summer Workshop Scholarship this spring.
Morgan’s selection was announced during April by the Journalism Educators of Metropolitan Kansas City at the organization’s annual Awards Night at Johnson County Community College.
She will use the $500 prize to pay for her week-long summer media experience at Ball State University in Indiana. Morgan’s writing portfolio was selected from over 70 entries, one from each Kansas City metropolitan high schools.
Her submissions included three of her best in-depth pieces that had been published in the LSHS Hi-Life magazine this past academic year.
