A recent Kentucky State University graduate recently earned a national journalism award.

湖北快3官方网址Garrick “Ricky” Foxhall Jr., won second place in the best radio promo/PSA category in the Pinnacle College Media Awards for the 2018-19 academic year.

“Ricky’s award is a huge deal for us because it is only our second year participating in the CMA Pinnacle awards,” Dr. David Shabazz, associate professor of journalism, said. “Mass communication and journalism as a major at Kentucky State didn’t start until 2007. This shows that in a few short years our program has grown to the level where we can compete and win against students at larger universities.”
