Additional Information

George Foreman is a boxing champion, Olympic gold medal winner, and celebrated pitchman. As a young man, he was inspired by President Lyndon Johnson and by RTDNF founder Barney Oldfield. In his autobiography "By George," Foreman credits LBJ's Job Corps program for rescuing him "from the gutter." He also thanks Barney Oldfield "for a lifetime of friendship, devotion, counsel, and wisdom. The world would be a far better place if everyone were lucky enough to have a friend like you." Scholarships will be awarded in December. Winners are also invited to attend the Excellence in Journalism conference.
