    • July 3, 2023

    Fullerton College journalist Pedro Saravia was selected to receive the fourth annual John Westcott Memorial Journalism Scholarship.

    The $350 scholarship is named in honor of Westcott, an Orange County Register staff member from 1981 to 2001 and an adjunct journalism professor at Fullerton and Saddleback community colleges. Westcott died in 2019 from brain cancer.

    Saravia, 19, will be the news editor for Fullerton College’s newspaper, The Hornet, in the fall semester.

    “Pedro is a hardworking journalist who wants to work in the field and has already amassed a body of work in sports, news, culture and multimedia production at Fullerton College,” Fullerton College journalism instructor Jessica Langlois said in a release.
