WUIS' This I Believe
2014 marks the eighth class of high school seniors WUIS has asked to share what they believe. This I Believe was started by journalist Edward R. Murrow in 1951 to allow anyone able to distil the guiding principles by which they lived.
The Rotary Club of Springfield, Sunrise has partnered with WUIS each year and provides a scholarship to the selected authors.
WUIS will air the essays in their authors’ voices these last two weeks of February at 7:35 a.m., 12:20 p.m., 4:45 p.m., and 7:20 p.m. The audio may also be streamed here at WUIS.org.
This I Believe is WUIS' annual essay program for central Illinois high school seniors. An expression of where their minds are as they are about to enter the adult world.
The program began in 2007 and has been support by the Rotary Club of Springfield Sunrise each year. The club provides each selected author with a $100 scholarship when they read their essay at a Rotary meeting.
