Work experience gained as students at Wichita State University was critical to the success of the recipients of the 2012 Elliott School of Communication alumni awards, taking place in October.
Denver television news anchor Jeremy Hubbard, and Jennifer Wright, president of Wichita's Orpheum Theatre, will return to the WSU campus Wednesday and Thursday, Oct. 17-18 to accept their awards and make presentations to students during the Elliott School's annual Communication Week. A complete schedule for Communication Week will be announced soon.
Hubbard, who is the Elliott School's outstanding alumnus for 2012, had his start in broadcasting as part of Studio B, WSU's student-produced live weekly newscast. His career eventually led him to ABC News in New York.
About Jeremy Hubbard:
"I'm grateful to have attended classes at the Elliott School," Hubbard said. "I can't wait to come back and see the new ways students are learning the fundamentals taught to me by people I respect and admire to this day."
About Jennifer Wright:
"Jeremy and Jennifer exemplify the entrepreneurial spirit that sets Elliott School students apart," said Lou Heldman, the school's interim director. "Their stories and successes are inspiring. We are excited to have them back on campus to share their passion and knowledge with our current students."
The Elliott School's outstanding alumni award has been presented annually since 2001. Previous winners are: Alan Schroeder, Quincalee Brown, Al Higdon, Cliff Tarpy, Cathy Henkel, Vaughn Sink, Orin Friesen, Ralph Vautravers, Sara Quinn, Gary Bender, and Carol and Norman Rehme.
