Columbus teen wins Fox54's "Teens to Watch" scholarship

WXTX has named its annual scholarship winner in the "Fox54 Teens to Watch" program.  This year's winner is Michael Gordon from Columbus.

He was chosen to receive this scholarship because of his outstanding academics and performance in schools. 

He is currently a Freshman at the University of South Alabama in Mobile, and is studying computer science.  Gordon tells us that he has big dreams to one day work at a major computer company like Microsoft or Apple. 

He says that this scholarship means a lot to him, and just proves that with hard work you can achieve your dreams.

This scholarship is designed to highlight students who excel in academics, athletics, arts or community service.  The top winner is awarded $5,400.00 and a brand new laptop computer.  Four other students will also receive computers.
