Country Radio Broadcasters Names 2018 Rusty Walker Scholarship Recipients

Jennifer Hays, Mark Wells, Jamie Jackson

The Country Radio Broadcasters have named Jennifer Hays – “Jenn Parker” (Music Director/On Air, KCTR/Billings, MT), Mark “Haystack” Wells (Program Director/KCYT-FM/Fayetteville, AR), and Jamie Jackson (Promotions Director/95.3 KRTY/San Jose) as recipients of the 2018 Rusty Walker Scholarship. Each individual will receive an all-expense paid trip and attendance to CRS 2018 February 5-7, 2018.  The three scholars will be recognized during the CRS 2018 Opening Ceremonies.

The Rusty Walker Scholarship program is named in honor of Country Radio Hall of Fame member Rusty Walker, who passed away in May 2012 at the age of 59. To honor Walker’s belief in cultivating rising stars, CRS created the scholarship program in his name, enabling young members of the industry who may not otherwise have the chance to attend CRS.
