We’re nearly halfway through the semester, and I think we’re all ready for winter to be over and to enjoy those longer days.
SJMC students and alumni were well represented at this year’s Iowa Newspaper Association’s annual awards ceremony and took home awards in every category. Sabine Martin won the Harrison "Skip" Weber Investigative Reporting Award and Hannah Pinski won the Genevieve Mauck Stoufer Outstanding Young Iowa Journalists Award for their work at the Daily Iowan. Current students Grace Smith, Jerod Ringwald, and Ayrton Breckenridge took home several awards in photography. Congratulations to all the winners!

Students have also been staying busy with two new student groups, the Online News Association and the National Press Photographers Association, career webinars, and events in our Student Center. We also hosted our first exhibition of student work at Iowa Admitted Students Day.
