Journalism Student Invited to Prestigious NABJ Event
Samford University journalism student Yvonne Thomas has been selected to attend the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) Multimedia Short Course at North Carolina A&T State University March 18-21.
During the all-expenses-paid course, the Nashville, Tenn., native and other students will produce a newscast, webcasts, podcasts, video slide shows and related social media sites. They will be instructed by NC A&T faculty and experienced industry reporters, news directors, producers, videographers and graphic designers.
“I'm so happy to attend the short course and to represent a department that has given so much to me,” Thomas said.
“I am extremely proud of Yvonne's work as a broadcast journalist on Samford News Network,” said Journalism and Mass Communication Department chair Bernie Ankney. “She's also won nearly every academic recognition Samford offers and this award is a recognition of her tremendous accomplishments.”
In addition to her academic accomplishments, Thomas serves as a Samford Ambassador.
