Joe Toohey, a graduating senior majoring in communication and theatre arts, and minoring in political science, has been awarded John Carroll University’s “Meet the Press” Fellowship for 2010-11, the university announced Friday. Founded in memory of the late Tim Russert, who was a John Carroll graduate, the fellowship is a nine-month internship in the Washington, D.C. bureau of NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
Toohey is from Mount Pleasant, Pa., outside of Pittsburgh, and has had an impressive collegiate career. He received the James Breslin Broadcasting Excellence Scholarship Award in 2009; he is a member of Lambda Pi Eta (the National Communications Honors Society); he has served as a volunteer with Shoes and Clothes for Kids as well as with the New Life Community; and he has been consistently on the John Carroll University Dean’s List since 2007.
Good work, Joe!
