SAU wins prestigious scholarship — again

2e1ax_default_entry_CMooreClayshawn Marie Moore, a senior Journalism and Mass Communication major from Houston, Texas, has won the prestigious 2015 Ailes Rising Apprentice scholarship from Fox News.

The scholarship, which is awarded to two minority students from across the nation, includes a $10,000 education grant and an internship at the Fox News offices in New York City or Washington, D.C.

Moore is the fourth Saint Augustine’s University student – following Sakeeda Freeman in 2012, Princess Goodridge in 2013 and Naomi Afari in 2014 – to earn this coveted award.

“My parents always told me that hard work pays off,” she said. “The excitement that I have right now surpasses what any words can truly describe. As a student at Saint Augustine’s University we are academically challenged to meet deadlines and think outside the box. I know I would not have made it without this great institution. I hope that this great achievement inspires others to set high goals.”

Clayshawn and Professor Peder Zane, chair of the department of Mass Communication and Journalism, flew to New York last week where Moore was honored at a ceremony at Fox News headquarters on Nov. 13. Featured speakers will include Roger Ailes, who Chairman and CEO of Fox News as well as the Chairman of Fox Television Stations.
