A Ridgefield resident who is attending Ithaca College has been presented with a $100,000 scholarship.  Sammie Watts received the funding live on the Today Show, from actor Will Ferrell.  The tuition contest was created by the Today Show and Ferrell's new film, The House.  2,000 submissions were sent in, and Watts, who wants to become a speech pathologist, was selected yesterday.  Her father is recovering from esophageal cancer and most of the family's money has gone toward treatments.  The tuition contest was to write about why someone you love deserves money for a college education.
