Charlene Richards, a graduating senior at Trenton Central High School, was selected to be this year’s recipient of Greater Trenton’s Annual Journalism and Communications Internship and Scholarship Program.
“Since launching this internship and scholarship initiative last summer, we have been thoroughly impressed with the caliber of talent and professionalism displayed by these graduating Trenton Central High School students,” said Bryan Evans, Vice President at Greater Trenton. “We look forward to working with Charlene to create more positive narratives about our resilient Capital City, but more importantly, we look forward to providing Charlene with some real-world experience that will hopefully leapfrog her career and position her for greater success.”
During her time at Trenton Central High School, Richards joined many extracurricular activities, improving her relationships with students and staff alike. She was a member of the student council, Vice President of Community Outreach and a cheerleader during all four years of her high school career.
Richards is pursuing her college education at The George Washington University in the fall and was granted a scholarship package just about equal to a full ride.
