Ken Baldwin, ’49, a retired newspaper executive and loyal donor to the School of Journalism and Mass Communications received the Excellence in Service Award.

The school established the alumni awards in 1984 to recognize former students who have achieved significant recognition in journalism and mass communications.

The Distinguished Alumni Award is for graduates who have been out of school for more than 10 years and whose careers represent significant professional achievement. The Outstanding Young Alumni Award is for graduates who have been out of school 10 years or less but who have already demonstrated significant professional accomplishments early in their careers. The service award honors contributions to the school by alumni and others in the professional community.
