Joplin, Mo. – Alex Bryant, a junior mass communications major from Joplin, will be among students from around the state who will receive scholarships from the Missouri Broadcasters Association and the MBA Foundation.

The $1,250 MBA Foundation Scholarship will be presented during the organization’s annual convention, set for June 10-11 in Branson. Bryant was nominated for the scholarship by Missouri Southern’s KGCS-TV, where he has been involved in many productions and activities. He joins a list of successful scholarship recipients from the station, said Judy Stiles, general manager of KGCS.

“We’re proud that the Missouri Broadcasters Association has recognized our students by awarding scholarships,” said Stiles. “It shows the quality level of our students here at Missouri Southern.”

KGCS-TV operates as a service of the Department of Communication. Students gain valuable hands-on experience in broadcasting by working at the station. Programming may be seen over the air on digital channel 22 and on regional cable television systems.
