The Varsity News Network recently awarded the Scholar Athlete/Journalist Scholarship award to Ranger Senior Gabby Saldivia. The Varsity News Network established the scholarship in order to honor a Senior Athlete who also participated in writing articles for FHCRangers.com. When looking for a senior to honor the decision for teacher Ken George and Athletic Director Bill Kennedy was an easy one.
“I remember seeing Gabby at a number of events working late in to the night in frigid temps. I was really excited to see someone taking the job of getting articles done for the site so seriously.” said Kennedy.
Gabby also loved to see the change from a class run website to the now more formal FHCRangers site. “It is such a great looking site and we really felt like the student body got into it with the connection with Facebook.” She also noted “Even though we had assignments to get done, it never really felt like work.”
Gabby will use the $500 award towards her studies at Michigan State next fall were she plans on getting involved with writing.
