ACP is proud to report that board member Monica Hill received the David Adams Journalism Educator of the Year Award for her exceptional contributions to the field of scholastic journalism at the AEJMC conference in Washington D.C. on August 9th, 2013.
The David Adams Journalism Educator of the Year Award is given annually during AEJMC’s summer convention to recognize a deserving division member for his/her outstanding performance in the college/university classroom and in scholastic journalism workshops and conferences.
Fellow ACP board member Peter Bobkowski had this to say about Hill’s leadership role in the realm of journalism education:
“Colleagues from across the country seek Monica’s input and engagement for the unique attributes she brings to their organizations: level-headedness, an unflagging work ethic, Southern-style diplomacy, and an intimate knowledge of the issues facing journalism students and advisers,” said Peter Bobkowski, assistant professor at the University of Kansas William Allen White School of Journalism who worked as Hill’s graduate assistant at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill in 2006. “Monica may not say much during board and committee meetings but when she does speak, people listen.”
