OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A student at the University of Central Oklahoma has been awarded a $1,000 scholarship by the Oklahoma Educational Television Authority.

Professional media major Mike Ipong, a sophomore from Oklahoma City, received one of four William “Bill” Thrash and Gene Dillehay OETA scholarships during the 2014 Oklahoma Broadcast Education Association seminar in Oklahoma City.

The scholarships, given annually to Oklahoma broadcasting students, are named for OETA’s longtime station manager, Bill Thrash, who died in 2013, and Gene Dillehay, the voice of OETA for 18 years.

Ipong currently works at an Oklahoma City radio station and hopes to continue his career in the radio industry following graduation.

The scholarship, which will be applied to his tuition, will allow Ipong the flexibility to attend a broadcast industry conference in Las Vegas in 2015.
