Greenlee Schools seeks nominations for two new alumni awards

The Greenlee School of Journalism and Communication is establishing two new awards in 2020 to honor its alumni. Nominations for both awards will be accepted now through Dec. 1, 2019.

The Greenlee Professional Achievement Award recognizes a Greenlee School graduate who has demonstrated leadership, impact and achievement in advertising, journalism and mass communication or public relations. This award serves as a “mid-career” recognition of excellence with their field. Nominate a Greenlee School alumnus/a for this award.

The Greenlee Young Alumni Award recognizes a Greenlee School graduate under 40 years of age or with fewer than 15 years of professional experience who has demonstrated excellence within their field. This award serves as an “early career” recognition of excellence in advertising, journalism and mass communication or public relations. Nominate a Greenlee School alumnus/a for this award.

These new awards complement the existing James W. Schwartz Award, the highest honor conferred by the Greenlee School. They also mirror university and college awards for similar achievements.

“Our Schwartz Award recognizes the lifetime achievements of our alumni and friends. With the establishment of two new awards, the faculty and our alumni are excited to recognize the accomplishments of Greenlee graduates at different points in their careers,” said Angela Powers, Greenlee School director.

One Greenlee Professional Achievement Award and one Greenlee Young Alumni Award will be conferred annually. Current members of the Greenlee School of Journalism and Communication faculty/staff, advisory council and awards committee are ineligible to receive the awards.

The recipients will be honored at a spring honors and awards banquet.
