2012 TAPB Scholarship Winners

Two students have been chosen to share $15,000 in Texas Associated Press Broadcasters scholarships.

The winners are Brenna Arthur of Frisco and Andrew Nepsund of San Antonio.

The TAPB board, meeting at the Dallas AP office on March 3, 2012, voted to give $5,000 to Arthur, who is a freshman attending the University of North Texas in Denton. Nepsund, who's a junior at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, will receive a $10,000 scholarship.

The scholarships were presented March 31 during the 2012 TAPB awards banquet at the Headliners Club in Austin.
