Tuesday, May 3, 2022 - 11:30am

Three students at the College of Journalism and Mass Communications have been named Chancellor’s Scholars. This is the highest academic award the University offers and this year the distinction is shared by 82 student scholars graduating this May.

Each of these students have earned an A in every undergraduate class. They’ll be listed as Chancellor’s Scholars in the May 2022 Commencement program and each scholar will receive a Chancellor’s Scholar certificate with their diploma and a Chancellor’s Scholar pin to wear on the ribbon of their medallion.

The following are CoJMC’s 2022 Chancellor’s Scholars:
