After her untimely death in 1991, the family of Cindy L. Schott established this memorial scholarship to encourage other journalists to emulate their daughter’s commitment to caring, responsible communications about and concern for the people and communities she served.  Hired by WEAU-TV in 1985, Ms. Schott believed in using the power of the media to educate, promote positive action and interact with the community - always with a conscience.
