Strength in the Community Scholarship Winner, Lauren Gray

Meet Lauren Gray one of 12 winners of the FOX 21 Strength in the Community scholarship.

The Strength in the Community Scholarship was created to help students reach their goals to pursue higher education in a time of rising tuition costs. Twelve finalists will receive $1,000, but one will trade in their $1,000 for a $10,000 check.

Lauren is a Superior High School student, where she has been known to snap photos at every opportunity she gets.

“I started going to all the sporting events, taking all the pictures and covering things like that and I just loved it,” Lauren stated.

Lauren will be attending the University of Wisconsin-Stout in the fall, majoring in Mass Communication and Media and Applied Journalism.

Lauren and the rest of the finalists will find out on June 6 whether they’ve received the big $10,000 check.
