The University of Iowa School of Journalism and Mass Communication awarded me with the John F. Murray Outstanding Doctoral Student—Teaching merit. Dr. Dan Berkowitz announced that it was given to me based on my interactions with students in my Media Uses and Effects class, my work toward a graduate certificate in college teaching (which I’ll finish this fall), and the intersections between my teaching and research. I’m thankful to the School of Journalism and Mass Communication for the award, and I’m excited to continue to develop as a teacher in the coming years.
