Three Howard Undergraduate Journalists Receive White House Correspondents Association Scholarships
Three Howard University undergraduates have been appointed 2022 White House Correspondents’ Association (WHCA) Scholarship Recipients. Kiara Patterson, Kendall Lanier and Corinne Dorsey are all three juniors who plan to graduate in 2023. They join winners from 12 other institutions for a total of $105,900 in scholarships.
Howard President Dr. Wayne AI Frederick called the winners “communicators of the future, and we ask them to continue the tradition of excellence in their efforts to advance the truth.”
Specializing in broadcast journalism, Patterson is co-chair of social media for Howard’s Association of Black Journalists.
Lanier is CEO of Spotlight Network, the broadcast news organization serving Howard. She has ambitions to become a sports reporter for a major network and hopes to one day host her own show.
Dorsey won the Harry McAlpin Fellowship, named for the first black journalist to cover a presidential press conference. She is a freelance writer and editor of Revolutionary, a social justice platform developed by Howard students.
