District â€“ Edison State College congratulates Dunbar High School the ABC-7 Cool School winner for the Fall 2008 semester!
Edison State is proud to welcome Dunbar Senior Reva Franks to Edison State College in the Fall of â€™09! Reva was selected to receive the grand prize of a one-year scholarship to Edison State.
â€œIâ€™m really happy I was chosen, but there are so many students who deserve this,â€ Franks said humbly. â€œI really love this school.â€
Each semester Edison State College teams up with ABC-7 News to find out which area high school has the most school spirit.
More than a month ago ABC-7 began asking all area public and private high schools to submit videos highlighting reasons their school is the coolest.
Once all the videos are in, students vote on-line at ABC-7.com to select the winning school. Dunbar principal Carl Burnside chose Ms. Franks because of her outstanding contributions throughout her years at Dunbar High.
â€œReva is a great example of the type of student we welcome to Edison State College,â€ Dr. Robert Jones, Edison State College Lee Campus President. â€œWe are excited about the many talents sheâ€™ll bring to our campus.â€
Franks hopes to study technology and media.
Be on the lookout this spring for another â€œCool Schoolsâ€ competition. Beginning in April ABC-7 will announce another opportunity to win a one-year scholarship to Edison State College.
