Gard named top volleyball student reporter for documentary series
Morgan Gard, MS’19, was recognized as the top College Student Reporter for 2018-19 by the American Volleyball Coaches Association for her work on “Ambition: The New IU,” a documentary series produced by Media School students documenting the volleyball team’s rebuilding process under new head coach Steve Aird.
Gard was the project’s videographer, filming all home and away games.
“The goal of the series was to tell stories and document reality, rather than force feed or manufacture a narrative,” said Jeremy Rosenthal, Cert’10, assistant director of media relations for IU Athletics. “People saw the ups and down throughout the season and how the team responded in moments of adversity. Morgan is very talented and is a very dedicated student.”
