Symposium to address Women and Media, Honor Four Prominent Alumnae | Community Spirit
The 2012 inductees into The University of Southern Mississippi’s School of Mass Communication and Journalism Hall of Fame include four of the institution’s most prominent alumnae, including an interactive journalism pioneer, an Emmy-winning television executive, a popular New Orleans television news anchor and a former Southern Miss president.
The inductions will take place at a luncheon during the School of Mass Communication and Journalism’s annual symposium Nov. 15. “Southern Miss Women and the Media: #usmsteelmagnolias” will be held in the Thad Cochran Center on the Hattiesburg Campus.
The Southern Mississippi Mass Communication and Journalism Hall of Fame was created in 2006 to give the School of Mass Communication and Journalism a way to honor alumni and other Mississippians who have had distinguished careers in the media. The keynote address at the luncheon will be delivered by Southern Miss alum Tena Clark, Grammy-winning music producer and CEO of DMI Music and Media Solutions. Clark was inducted into the MCJ Hall of Fame in 2011.
