Each year the School of Journalism and Mass Communication hosts the SJMC Student Awards in May to recognize outstanding students.

Each degree program selects one student from all of the declared majors for this award. The programs make their selections differently, but most consider GPA, student involvement, and other accomplishments. The award is highly competitive, and it is often difficult for faculty members to choose just one representative.

Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19), all in-person events have been suspended, but we would still like to acknowledge and honor these students for all of their hard work, dedication, and accomplishments.

This year’s award winners are as follows:

Advertising’s Top Student: Monica Dyess
Digital Media Innovation’s Top Student: Emma Chapman
Electronic Media’s Top Student: Will Wadsworth
General Mass Communication’s Top Student: Gabriella Cusato
Journalism’s Top Student: Jakob Rodriguez
Public Relation’s Top Student: Lynsey Lamoureux

Top Graduate Student: Liz Sisemore

Congratulations to all of these amazing students!
