Fox Named 'Faculty of the Year' in Comm Day Honors
Comm Day 2012, recognizing the School of Communication's cadre of graduate students, was held Friday at the Whestone Park Shelter House, where Dr. Jesse Fox, right, took home Faculty of the Year honors.
Other awards bestowed on the top teaching and research-focused grad students, included:
- Albert Warren Scholarship Award for Teaching: Elizabeth Stoycheff
- Doris Gildea Morgan Scholarship Award for Senior Graduate Research: Megan Hill
- Walter B. Emery Scholarship Award Winner for Junior Graduate Research: Brian Weeks
The keynote speaker for the event was Nancy Signorielli, left, a professor and the director of graduate program at the University of Delaware, who spoke to the group on the topic of "50 years of prime-time media consumption."
Signorielli's research has focused on three areas: What are the institutions that produce media images, how do they operate, and what kinds of constraints do they face.
The students also recognized Dr. Lance Holbert, who was ending his two-year term as chair of the Graduate Committee.
