JDM majors receive Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges recognition

The JDM is proud to announce that two of our very own, senior Molly Leonard and senior Justine Ackerman, are Ashland University recipients of the Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges award. This award exists as one of the most prestigious and long-standing honors programs in the nation. For students across the country, it marks an impressive scholastic achievement. The students who are chosen to receive this award strive to enhance the positive image of students through their efforts and contributions to the community and their school.

Molly is well-known across campus and active in many different clubs and organizations including cheerleading and works as the news update producer for AU-TV20. Tim McCarty, Interim Chair of the Journalism and Digital Media Department says that the JDM staff couldn’t be more proud of Molly, “We think it's great. Molly is a terrific student and she has learned a ton of production skills to which have helped her produce many great news segments for AU-TV20. We are all very happy for Molly!”

Justine is a journalism major and is the managing editor of The Collegian, which this year was named the best non-daily college newspaper in Ohio and is also a finalist for three awards in the Ohio Newspaper Association's annual college newspaper competition. Matt Tullis, assistant professor of journalism and adviser of The Collegian, says the Justine's honor is well deserved. "Nobody works harder, both in and out of the classroom, to make herself a better journalist. She's been instrumental in the redesign of The Collegian and in making sure we remain one of the best college newspapers in the state."

Congrats Molly and Justine for this awesome recognition! We are proud of you!
