Risa Johnson, features editor at The Orion, has been awarded the California College Media Association Career Development Scholarship. This $1,000 scholarship is designed to give financial assistance to a student who needs support in order to pursue studies or practical experience. Risa will use the money to support her summer internship at Venues Today. CCMA received only one scholarship application, so only one grant was awarded.
