Have you ever received a scholarship? I was never talented enough as a videographer
to win, but I have met someone who has.
An Inland Empire student from University High School, Cameron Blegan won
the award in 2017 by creating an amazing video about fake online reviews.
Check out the winning video of 2017:
Cameron’s Winning Video
Pretty cool, right? I
think so. It was exceptional that
Cameron was able to take something like fake online reviews and create an
interesting and informative video. He
used his scholarship and took his talents to Montana State University where he
is currently an undergraduate researcher in the technology field. Better Businesses Bureau Northwest and
Pacific presented this prestigious award during a Portland Trailblazer game in
2018. Pretty cool, right?
So, what is the Students of Integrity Scholarship?
Better Business Bureau Northwest and Pacific offers the
Students of Integrity Scholarship annually to recognize high school juniors and
seniors who personify and communicate ethics in the real world, as demonstrated
through community service, personal integrity and academic accomplishments.
Through the years it has evolved to what is today; and with
our newest approach we can award new recipients in a wide variety of ways.
