This fall, the Missouri School of Journalism named 85 incoming freshman Walter Williams Scholars — the highest level of student distinction in the school.
To qualify, students must have been in the top 20 percent of their high school class, have maintained a GPA of 3.25 or above and have earned at least a 33 on the ACT or 1480 on the SAT.
“We are excited to have a stellar group of Walter Williams Scholars, and we are particularly excited to have the second highest number in our program’s history,
said Brian Brooks, associate dean emeritus and Walter Williams Scholars program faculty lead. “They represent the future of American journalism, and we are thrilled to welcome them to Mizzou and the School of Journalism.”
