Receiving the Coloff Media Scholarship was a student who has expressed interest in entering into the communications studies discipline. She has demonstrated her talents in radio reports on KIOW and KHAM from the Hancock County District Fair and her work in the West Hancock Speech Club. Lilliana Hill was awarded $250 to be used in her collegiate endeavors. We at Coloff Media are excited to have a talented student like Ms. Hill receive the award and wish her well in her college career.
