The purpose of the American Journalism Historians Association (AJHA) is to "advance education and research in mass communications history."  At last weekend's southeast symposium of the AJHA, Samford swept the top two awards in the category of undergraduate research, with Bailey Fuqua placing first and Rachel Stanback placing second. Following the presentation, Bailey and Rachel were quick to thank faculty member Julie Williams for her assistance in preparing them for the event.

The world is better because of Samford's emphasis on undergraduate scholarship.
