Alumni Awards 2013

2013 alumni award recipients announced

The School of Journalism and Mass Communications is proud to present the 2013 Alumni Awards. The school awards exceptional graduates whose careers represent significant professional achievement. The School of Journalism and Mass Communications will publicly acknowledge this year’s five recipients at the Annual Alumni Awards Dinner on Thursday Oct. 31, 2013.

The Distinguished Alumni Award honors graduates of the School of Journalism and Mass Communications who have demonstrated a history of exemplary work in their professional careers and who have been out of school for at least 10 years. The 2013 Distinguished Alumni Award recipients are:

• Stephen Brown, managing director for Cohn & Wolfe Atlanta (1995, public relations)
• Jane Pigg, president and CEO of Pee Dee Broadcasting, LLC (1974, journalism)

The Outstanding Young Alumni Award honors graduates of the School of Journalism and Mass Communications who have been out of school for 10 years or less but have already demonstrated great professional accomplishments early in their careers. The 2013 Outstanding Young Alumni Award Recipients are:

• Kent Babb, sports enterprise writer for The Washington Post (2004, journalism)
• Sally Cumberland Brown, global brand manager for Unilever (2005, MMC)

The Excellence in Service Award honors graduates or friends of the School of Journalism and Mass Communications who have shown exemplary service to the program or profession. This year, the recipient is Van Kornegay, associate professor and head of the school’s visual communications sequence.

Dr. Carol Pardun, director of the School of Journalism and Mass Communications, looks forward to the awards dinner. She believes that the Annual Alumni Awards are important for the accomplished alumni as well as the school.

“Every year, as we celebrate our outstanding alums, we are reminded of the impact our students can have on our professions.  We can't always predict who will rise to the top.  And we can't always envision the path our students may take.  But an event such as our Outstanding Alumni Awards evening gives us a glimpse into the future for the students we are teaching today.  And as these current outstanding alumni demonstrate, it is a future full of possibility.”
