TUSCALOOSA, AL- WTVY received a U-report from an University of Alabama alum who is competing for a $100,000 scholarship. Check out his story.
My name is Xavier Burgin. I am an alumni of The University of Alabama. I graduated last May and I am currently a graduate student at The University of Southern California's Cinematic Arts Program.
I recently entered a contest known as the Dr. Pepper Tuition Giveaway.
Essentially, it is a contest where you make a one minute video sharing what you want to become in the future. You also explain why you need financial help.
Well, little did I know...Dr. Pepper called me back.
I won a $2500 scholarship and they told me I'm one of ten who have the opportunity to go to the National Championship in January to compete for the $100,000 scholarship.
The competition has already started so I need your vote!
The five who get the most votes will go to the National Championship and throw for the scholarship.
As a resident of Alabama living in California to pursue my dream as a filmmaker at USC's Cinematic Arts Program; I would truly appreciate your votes!
This is even bigger because Alabama will be going to the National Championship and I could be an alumni representing the school for 100K tuition scholarship throw.
