Victoria Phan won big in a media contest by interviewing her father. The Lugoff-Elgin High School (L-EHS) junior earned second place and a $750 scholarship in a contest called Bridging Generations through Technology, Information, Media and Engagement (BGTIME). Victoria wrote a story about her father’s escape from Vietnam at the age of 17, as a final project for her journalism class taught by 2013 Kershaw County Honor Roll Teacher Shannon Team, who encouraged students to enter the contest.
