Thomas selected as October Student of the Month

Sunday, November 6, 2022 - 4:30am

The UNL College of Journalism and Mass Communications Student Advisory Board voted to select Peyton Thomas as the October 2022 Student of the Month. Thomas is a senior broadcasting, journalism and sports media and communication triple major from Gilbert, Arizona. 

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

  • Peyton organized a group of Unlimited Sports students to produce live streams of the UNL club hockey teams' home games. The group did all of the setup and production in addition to providing the talent for the first two hockey games last weekend, and the live streams looked very good. The streams had almost 1100 views and provided a great hands-on opportunity for the students. KUDOS to the entire group for taking on this project and executing it!

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.
