"Our students continue to amaze me,” he said. “Even during a challenging year they continue to create meaningful stories that are consistently viewed as some of the best student work by our colleagues and peers from around the country.”
Kadie Daye, The Globe student station manager said the nomination is a testament to the strong team present every day.
“Having staff members that want to do good work and motivating professors to help guide us to success makes a world of difference, and the Globe wouldn’t be what it is without them.”
