It's Never Too Early!

Tuesday, April 21, 2009

It’s always encouraging to see young folks get interested in journalism—especially when they’re as young as Damon Weaver.

Brian Hamacher of NBC Miami tells the story of the fifth-grader from Pahokee, FL who has attracted national attention for his skills interviewing such luminaries as Joe Biden Caroline Kennedy, and Oprah Winfrey. And it only gets better from there: this sharp young guy was recently awarded a full-ride scholarship to Albany State University in Georgia. The school will be officially presenting him with the offer at a June alumni convention in Miami, and Damon plans to accept, calling it a “big relief to my mother and my family.”

As his first assignment, he’ll no doubt go after his dream interview: President Barack Obama.
