Kaitlin Nance, a senior from Cheney High School, has been named recipient of the 2013-2014 Victor Murdock Scholarship at Wichita State University.
WSU's Elliott School of Communication awards one Murdock scholarship a year to an incoming freshman with a journalism emphasis who, in the opinion of the selection committee, exhibits particular interest in and the potential for success in journalism.
"Kaitlin's passion for journalism is apparent," said Eric Wilson, Elliott School instructor and scholarship committee chair. "Her solid work with editing and multimedia reporting is reflective of the type of work we look for in Murdock scholarship recipients. We are excited to have her come to WSU to begin her journalism career."
Applicants must have a minimum high school GPA of 3.0. Murdock scholarships are a four year award, and the total amount available to each student is $5,000.
Victor Murdock was born in Burlingame, Kan., in 1871 and was the publisher and managing editor of The Wichita Eagle from 1894-1903. Following his political career as a five-term U.S. Representative, he returned as editor and publisher of the Wichita Eagle until his death in 1945.
The fund was established by his grandson, Captain Victor Delano (U.S. Navy, retired).
