Joseph Woolley received the Bridgestone/Firestone Public Affairs Scholarship for the 2005-2006 school year.
Nashville-based Bridgestone/Firestone recently established a new $2,500 Bridgestone/Firestone Public Affairs Scholarship at Belmont University. The scholarship is awarded annually to a full-time junior or senior public affairs student who demonstrates academic excellence, campus service, and professionalism. The recipient is selected by the Media Studies Department Chair and the Public Relations Director in consultation with officials at Bridgestone/Firestone, and is based on academic criteria, internship experience, references, participation in career-building activities, and demonstrated professionalism in the classroom, campus, and community.
Woolley will graduate with a Bachelor of Arts in May 2006 as a journalism major with an emphasis in convergence media. He has frequently represented Belmont University at alumni, prospective student, and other community events. His resume includes extensive internship experience with Freedom Forum First Amendment Center and Freedom Forum Diversity Institute, memberships to multiple public relations and journalism associations, and impressive volunteer work during the 2004 presidential campaign.
