    Fifth-Grade Journalist Lands College Scholarship
    S. Florida cub reporter gets a full ride

    [​IMG]

    Pint-sized journalist Damon Weaver may soon be a part of the Washington press. The cub reporter has been offered a full ride college scholarship.

    The pint-sized political reporter from South Florida who has interviewed Vice President Joe Biden and Caroline Kennedy has landed a full scholarship to a Georgia University.

    Little Damon Weaver from Pahokee has gained national attention for his reporting exploits and now this junior journalist is getting a free ride to Albany State University.

    The school will officially present Weaver with the scholarship at a June alumni convention in Miami. The fifth-grader said he plans on accepting the school's offer.

    Though he's interviewed pols like Biden and Kennedy and Hollywood elite including Samuel L. Jackson and Oprah, Weaver's dream is to interview President Barack Obama.

    He even received a little help with trying to get the Obama interview from Heat star Dwyane Wade in a special message to the President.

    In a press release, Weaver called the full ride a "big relief to my mother and my family."
