Cameron University student honored with OETA scholarship

Cameron University student Michael Faggett, a junior communication major from Dallas, was honored with the Gene Dillehay Memorial Scholarship from the Oklahoma Educational Television Authority (OETA) during the organization's recent annual student day conference. Faggett, who currently hosts the CUTV sports show "In the Huddle" and has worked on numerous CUTV shows for the past year and a half, was one of nine students nominated for the prestigious $1,000 scholarship.

"I feel honored to have been chosen for the scholarship and represent Cameron University in such capacity," Faggett says. "There are many talented broadcasting students and programs across the state, so to be selected as a scholarship recipient shows both the quality teaching the Communications department at Cameron provides and the benefits of applying that teaching."

During the conference, Faggett joined broadcast students from across Oklahoma for a daylong series of sessions on all aspects of the broadcast industry.
