Ennes Scholarship Awarded to a local student!
Congratulations to SBE Scholarship Recipient and Chapter 85 Member Rashonna Moore! Each year, the Ennes Educational Foundation Trust offers up to three scholarships to deserving candidates who aspire to a career in the technical aspects of broadcasting.
Scholarship awards are used for tuition, room and board or textbook costs at post-secondary educational institutions, or for other technical training programs approved by the Scholarship Committee. Preference will be given to applicants who are members of SBE; however, any individual otherwise eligible is encouraged to apply. Rashonna is one of the 3 recipients. Another example of the value of membership.
Rashonna will be using her newly received scholarship to attend the University of Central Oklahoma. She will be pursuing a degree in Broadcasting with a minor in engineering.
Rashonna has been married for five years to Mr. Jamel Moore. Jamel is an engineering technician at KOCO-5. They have a daughter named Tatiyana. Rashonna explains that her career in engineering just fell in her lap. While employed with KOCO-5, she states: I watched, practiced and learned the engineering ropes until I got them and that’s it! Her dream one day would be to own a television station.
Rashonna is currently an engineer with the Sinclair Broadcast Group in Oklahoma City. The station call letters are both KOKH-25 and KOCB-34.
Now that is awesome.
We at SBE Chapter 85 are very proud of Rashonna.
