Coweta students win UWG scholarships

Two Coweta County students have been recognized by the mass communications department at the University of West Georgia.

Ashley Copeland, a UWG senior from Sharpsburg, received the Rhubarb Jones Scholarship.

The scholarship is traditionally awarded to a student with a minimum grade point average of 2.5 who is a rising senior with a career goal in broadcast journalism.

Copeland also received the Toyal Jackson “Making a Difference” Award from the UWG Student Government Association.

Copeland is the editor of The West Georgian and was elected executive secretary to the Georgia College Press Association.

Lindsay Langham, a freshman at UWG from Newnan, received the George Fields Whatley Scholarship.

The award is traditionally given to a student who actively pursues extracurricular activities, with special consideration to students involved in the university newspaper, The West Georgian.
