When Weijie Jiang (pronounced Wage-e-jang), a Watford City High School senior, looks back on the most memorable days of his life, Dec. 14 will surely be one of them. It’s the day he learned he had received a full-ride scholarship to Columbia University.
“I was at a JV basketball game in Dickinson, checking my emails on my phone. I kind of just sat there staring at my screen,” recalls Jiang, learning he had been accepted at his college of choice.
Once the news hit him, the class valedictorian describes being instantly overtaken by joy and notifying his best friend, Andrew and then his parents.
