Shreveport Journalism Foundation Awards Garland Memorial Scholarship to LSUS Student Blair Burlison

LSUS senior mass communication student Blair Burlison of Benton, La., was awarded the 2015 Kerry Garland Memorial Scholarship by the Shreveport Journalism Foundation on Friday evening (11/20/15).

The Garland scholarship has been awarded annually since 1987 to a junior or senior majoring in the field of mass communication, journalism, or public relations.

Burlison, who is studying public relations, is the eighth LSUS student to earn this honor in the history of the award. She plans to spend her final semester interning in Dallas, Texas, and to pursue a position with a major firm after graduation. 

John Lee of the Foundation presented Burlison with her plaque and a $1,000 check at the conclusion of the SJF's annual meeting.  The perpetual plaque, listing all recipients, is on display in the Department of Arts and Media in Bronson Hall.
