Nsight Telservices is proud to announce Pulaski High School seniors Trevor Stiede and Haley Holewinski as the recipients of the 2019 Ray J. Riordan Scholarship. Each student was awarded a $750 scholarship.
The Ray J. Riordan Scholarship was established in 1989 to recognize a Pulaski High School senior who serves as an editor for the Pulaski News. The Pulaski News is the oldest student-run community newspaper in the United States. Ray J. Riordan served as an editor for the Tricopa, a community paper that preceded the Pulaski News. Ray was the son of Daniel and Florence Riordan, the first generation of the Riordan family to be involved in the telephone company.
The scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic record, potential to succeed, leadership and participation in school and community activities, and exceptional work at the Pulaski News.
“Throughout its rich history The Pulaski News is regularly given new life through the fresh energy and perspective delivered by the student reporters and editors. Their dedication, enthusiasm and work ethic has been demonstrated during their time at The Pulaski News and those qualities will serve them well as they move on in their post-secondary education. Nsight Telservices is proud to offer our support and we wish Trevor and Haley the best in their future endeavors,” said Cindy Durand, director of public affairs at Nsight.
