On Thursday, the Department of Communication & Media Studies celebrated the accomplishments of top students in Multimedia Journalism and Integrated Marketing Communication with the whole of campus in a ceremony held in Smith Chapel.
At the event, awards for top honors were given to accomplished students in each of the academic areas at Simpson.
The Department of Communication & Media Studies was pleased to award the Top Senior in Integrated Marketing Communication to Alejandro Caballero and the Top Senior in Multimedia Journalism to Jesse Stewart. These two students have both produced amazing work at Simpson and in the greater community in the four years they have been here.
Alejandro Caballero is an accomplished photographer and designer and the faculty and staff were thrilled to work with him on The Simpsonian and in his position of editor-in-chief of the Simpson College student-led magazine, ID Magazine. His freelance photography work has also been recognized for excellence. Join us in congratulating Alejandro on his accomplishments!
Jesse Stewart came to Simpson with a focus on radio and for the past two years has served as Station Manager of the KSTM Simpson radio station. You can find him most mornings on-air 88.9FM. He also maintains a busy schedule of gigs as a professional musician. After graduation, he will begin a full-time position at a radio station in northeast Iowa. Call or write to KSTM to send Jesse your wishes of congratulations.
In less than two weeks, the department will graduate a group of very accomplished students who have worked hard in their years at Simpson to grow as students and professionals. Their achievements have been on display recently at the Iron Journalist competition for Multimedia Journalism and next week, the Integrated Marketing Communication students will present their communication plan for a local client. These students have bright futures ahead of them and we are proud of their achievements.
