Black named Student of the Month

Sunday, January 29, 2023 - 7:30am

The UNL College of Journalism and Mass Communications Student Advisory Board voted to select Jessica Black as the December 2022 Student of the Month. Black is a junior advertising and public relations major from Lincoln, Nebraska.

SAB members vote for Student of the Month recipients based on the Kudos they have received during the previous month. Black received Kudos in December from members of the CoJMC community which lead to his selection. It was:

  • You identified that you needed help in order to meet your academic goals. You reached out, you offered suggestions on how to correct the issues, you created your own timelines to achieve the goals, you implemented the corrections while keeping your timeframes in check and then once on your feet--you moved forward and didn't look back. Ultimately, you moved this new attitude forward in the rest of your work and into exhibiting leadership skills in your class group. In other words, you are a proactive individual and able to move forward for yourself and others.

The Student Advisory Board will elect a Student of the Month each month. Award winners can select among three prizes including a college t-shirt, a Starbucks gift card or lunch with CoJMC Dean Shari Veil.

To nominate students for Student of the Month, recognize their commitment to college values by giving them Kudos. All Kudos recipients receive an email notification and certificate recognizing their contributions to the CoJMC community.
