BLUE ASH, OH (FOX19) - Ryana Wright couldn’t have asked for a better gift for the holidays. The University of Cincinnati Blue Ash College student was selected as the winner of a raffle held by the college; her prize is free tuition for the spring semester, which began January 7.
Students at UC Blue Ash College who registered for their spring classes by December 3 were eligible for the drawing. The semester runs from January 7 through April 19. More than 3,300 students registered in time, but only one was fortunate enough to have her name drawn.
“I am so happy and thankful I was chosen for this opportunity,” said Ryana, a graduate of North College Hill High School who is working toward a degree in Dental Hygiene. “I want to thank Dean Short-Thompson and everyone at the college for this incredible gift.”
The free tuition covers all instructional costs for the semester and is valued at just under $2,000.
