Southern Nevada Students Receive Scholarships

A southern Nevada student is getting help to go to college thanks to a young man who will be playing football at UNLV.

Jared Lebowitz from La Canada Flintridge, California was originally picked to receive a scholarship from pro football hall of famer Warren Moon.

However, Lebowitz was recruited to play quarterback at UNLV. The young man requested the money go to another student, and as a result, Joshua Mayfield of Chaparral High School will now get the scholarship.

He is one of two southern Nevada students getting the scholarship. Carlos Martin from Las Vegas High School is also getting money. The three other students are from Southern California.

The students received the honor during a ceremony at the Luxor Friday.
