Schultz heads back to school


The Conclave announced that Kelly Jo Ann Schultz has won its Continuing Education Scholarship for 2007. Schultz, who is both a play-by-play announcer and salesperson at RP Broadcasting’s KKBJ-AM & FM Bemidji, MN, has taken a leave of absence to become a fulltime student at Bemidji State University, majoring in communication. "It has been my dream to be a sports broadcaster since I was a little girl," Schultz wrote in her winning essay, recalling the Twin Cities sportscasters and DJs she grew up listening to. "Radio and television shaped my life and made me who I am today. I have dedicated my life to being the best broadcaster I can be," she wrote. Having won the 1,500 Continuing Education awarded by The conclave, Schultz says "an education is absolutely necessary to pursue any dream worth achieving."
