A student is one of two students chosen to share $15,000 in Texas Associated Press Broadcasters (TAPB) scholarships.
The TAPB board voted recently to give $10,000 to Andrew Nepsund of San Antonio. He is a Texas Tech junior, double majoring in broadcast journalism and history.
Brenna Arthur of Frisco, a freshman attending the University of North Texas, received the remaining $5,000.
