#3.  Description of supplemental outreach initiatives:

 

  1. Annual Scholarship for Broadcasting – President of Lenawee Broadcasting, Julie Koehn and Secretary Joyce Koehn developed the John W. Koehn Memorial Scholarship in 1992. This scholarship gives a one-time amount of $1,000.00 to a recipient each year.  It can be used for any post high school education, including community college, university or trade school.  It was developed in cooperation with the International Broadcasters Idea Bank and is funded by Lenawee Broadcasting Company.  Those that are eligible include any employee or child of an employee of an Idea Bank member station.  The recipient must be studying in a broadcast related field.  The scholarship is judged annually by a group of 6 broadcasters from the United States and Canada. To date we have awarded 23 scholarships totaling $24,000.00.  In 2017 the scholarship was awarded to a young woman studying broadcasting from Oklahoma.
  2. Annually – Internship Program – WLEN Radio has had an on-going internship program for more than 28 years, and it exists year-round. We have interns from local high schools, the Lenawee Intermediate school district, Adrian College and Siena Height University.  These programs are both in programming and in marketing, promotions and sales.  We take interns year-round as the interests arise.  Our interns have gone on to careers in sales, morning show personalities in middle markets, and careers in politics.  Station personnel involved in our internship program include, Julie Koehn, President, Leslie DeCapo, Administration, Dale Gaertner, Program Director, Kristina Kidney, Morning Show, Ashley Gonzalez, Sales and Kathy Williams, Sales. For the summer of 2017 we hosted a Siena Heights University Student in our sales and promotions department.  In addition, we hosted several middle school and high school students in a job shadowing program.
