It's been amazing getting to know some of our Crossroads seniors these past few weeks as we banded together with Victoria Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram to offer deserving seniors a $500.00 scholarship. We've read as many nominations as we could on air, and with every read, we've been honored to see so many young men and women overcoming challenges, doing their best, and going beyond, all in the face of COVID- 19.

In what has been dubbed as an unprecedented year, they have ALL conquered. Congratulations to ALL 2020 Seniors! Go Class of 2020.

With congratulations in mind, we are pleased to announce that we drew Edward Clay's name LIVE yesterday as the winning recipient of the Townsquare- Victoria Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram $500.00 scholarship.

We thought it would be fun to visit with Edward, who graduated LAST NIGHT from East High School!

What is your favorite memory of high school?

"Junior year was my favorite year because we went to playoffs at STJ. I played football and basketball at STJ."

Who was your favorite teacher during your senior year at East and why?

"My favorite teacher at East was Ms. Bleier, she teaches physics. She made it fun."

That's awesome, what about your favorite subject?

"My favorite subject would have to be rocketry. We learned how to build rockets."

ROCKETS?!?! WOW!

What are your plans for the future?

"I plan to graduate from college with my mechanical engineering degree. I want to become a mechanical engineer. I hope to work on defensive weapons and rockets in the future."

THAT IS SO COOL!

Is there anyone you would like to thank?

"I would like to thank my family and friends for helping to push me to better in life."

Thank you, Edward, we wish you all of the best in your future.
