The University of Nebraska-Lincoln's College of Journalism and Mass Communications is proud to announce Caitlyn Thomas as the February Student of the Month. Thomas, a senior journalism major from Papillion, Nebraska, was recognized for her outstanding support of fellow students.

Assistant Professor of Practice Sharon Baldinelli said in her nomination, “Caitlyn came to my Introduction to Journalism and Mass Communications class to present different study strategies, tips on feeling connected and provided words of encouragement to my freshmen students. Sharing her experience made a strong impact on my students.” 

The CoJMC Student Advisory Board selects students of the month based on the kudos they have received during the previous month. Award winners can select from 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, students and faculty can 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.
