CHS graduate wins Salt Lake Tribune scholarship

In any demanding profession, a person must navigate their way around many challenges and requirements on a daily basis that come with the job. For Nisheal Watson, that very thought made her experience in the journalism world a worthwhile experience.

Watson, a 2013 Carbon High School graduate, was one of 15 high school students around the state recently selected by the Salt Lake Tribune to receive a $1,000 scholarship to use toward pursuing a career in journalism.

"I always liked English and writing classes, so I just decided to get involved with the Carbon Nation newspaper," said Watson, 18. She quickly assumed a large role at the school newspaper serving as the Chief Editor.

While the journalism industry has undergone plenty of changes over the past decade, there has been no change in the work ethic required for the job. Deadlines, late nights in the computer lab and waiting for an elusive interview to materialize can all be a deterrent for students looking to get involved in journalism. But the thrill of seeing everything come together in the end is worth all of the hard work, Watson explained.

"You have to love what you do," she said. "In journalism, you have to go all the way. You have to take your own pictures, do research, get the good interviews and a lot more to get the paper out."

Carbon High teacher Gail Scoville said Watson's strong work ethic was noticeable on a daily basis in the classroom.

"She's worked so hard for the newspaper, so it's a wonderful feeling as a teacher to know she received the scholarship," said Scoville.

Watson said she plans to attend USU Eastern where she will continue her pursuit of a journalism career. She said her dream job would be to work as an editor.

"I want to stick with what I love to do," she said.
