- Undergraduates Sara Miller and Taylor Telford, co-authors, for “Intimidation and Violence Create an Era of Impunity for Journalists in Mexico,” written for associate professor Tony Fargo’s law class.
- Undergraduate Annie Mose for “Damned if She Does, Damned if She Doesn’t: The Press’s Early Introduction and Interpretation of Hillary Clinton.” This paper was developed in associate professor Mike Conway’s class.
The students received their honors at the school’s scholarship ceremony April 9.
Frances Wilhoit was the school’s journalism librarian in the 1970s through 1990s, assisting and guiding student research through many technology changes.
