2005 - Chick Hearn Night
Lastly, at halftime, the 2005 Chick Hearn Memorial Scholarship was presented to Jesse Aron, a senior at the University of Southern California and a Los Angeles native. Jesse is a sports anchor and reporter for USC’s Annenberg TV news, and the award also includes an internship with FSN West, where Jesse will assist with the production of live pre-game programming and game telecasts. In 2002, the Lakers established a scholarship fund in Chick’s name to support a deserving broadcast journalism student at the USC Annenberg School for Communication.
