One College of Journalism and Mass Communications student, Naomi Delkamiller, was inducted into the 2023-24 Mortar Board class on April 13 at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln’s annual Ivy Day ceremonies.

Delkamiller is a journalism and advertising and public relations double major from Omaha. She served as a student lead for the Nebraska News Service, as part of CoJMC’s Experience Lab and was selected to be a Carnegie-Knight News21 student fellow at Arizona State University during summer 2023. Currently, she’s a journalism fellow at the Flatwater Free Press.

The event, co-sponsored by Mortar Board and the Innocents Society, recognized outstanding contributions of students selected to serve in the two senior honorary organizations, as well as the achievements of current members and notable underclassmen and seniors.

Ceremonies took place at the Carolyn Pope Edwards Hall auditorium and concluded with the traditional planting of the ivy by the 2024-25 presidents of the societies — Hayley Moree of Papillion for Mortar Board and Charlotte Brockman of Gooding, Idaho, for the Innocents Society.

Brian F. Hastings, president and chief executive officer of the University of Nebraska Foundation, delivered the keynote address.

New members of Mortar Board are tapped into the Black Masque Chapter each spring by Mortar Boarders wearing black masks and robes. The 31 new members were selected based on scholarship, leadership and service.
