Welker is planning on going to Arizona State University in the next year to study digital and integrated marketing communications and submitted a one-minute video entry about what she would use the scholarship for.

“I would love to be the recipient of your scholarship because it would help fund my future,” Welker said in her entry video. “Using this scholarship money and putting it towards something that I’m passionate about would make me extremely grateful.”

“I’ve worked hard all throughout high school, and I’m super excited to go on to college to work even harder and to do something that I love,” Welker said.

“With this money I could either put it towards tuition for the cost of one of my classes or I could use it to pay for some textbooks, either way around I think that it would be very beneficial and make college a lot more affordable,” Welker said.

 “I know college costs a lot of money, but I’m excited to go and see where life takes me,” Welker said.

“Where are you planning on going to school?”
 Macomber asked Welker.

“ASU,” Welker said.

“Fantastic. What are you going to be going to school for?” Macomber asked.

“Marketing,” Welker said.

“Marketing, that’s awesome. So, do you want to do graphic design or like what part of it do you want to get into,” Macomber asked.

“Just like all of it. I really like the graphic design part, but I think like everything just interests me,” Welker said.
