The University of Nebraska-Lincoln College of Journalism and Mass Communications announces Seamus Doyle as the January Student of the Month. Doyle, a junior broadcasting major from Spring, Texas, was recognized for his commitment to learning about research.

Assistant Professor of Practice Sharon Baldinelli said in her nomination, “From day one in my class, Seamus asked for more- volunteering with our Media Training group. He asked for more-- to see research. He handled and learned about being a researcher: He collaborated with the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Public Health & the UNL Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources. He learned about how to apply data from our public opinion lab, how to code qualitative data and about intercoder reliability. He worked in MAXQDA with our drought research group, he acquired and compiled state & federal contacts, recorded and attended our focus groups, and worked again with our Media Training group as a resource and even took pictures to document our work together.”

The CoJMC Student Advisory Board selects students of the month based on the kudos they received during the previous month. Award winners can choose from three prizes: 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 acknowledging their contributions to the CoJMC community.
