SPJ DePaul Wins Three Campus Involvement Awards
SPJ DePaul won three awards at the Eighth Annual Leadership and Involvement Celebration May 30 on the Lincoln Park Campus.
SPJ DePaul was a finalist in four categories — more than any other student organization. The three winning entries:
Executive Board of the Year (Lauren Camplin, Meredith Gonsalves, Tabitha Hurley, Katie Karpowicz, Ewa Lyczewska and Ali Trumbull)
Outstanding Loop Campus Program of the Year (Freedom of Information Panel Discussion)
Faculty Adviser of the Year (Mike Reilley)
SPJ DePaul also was a finalist for Organization of the Year, an award it won in 2011.
The competition is sponsored and judged by DePaul’s Student Leadership Institute and the Office of Student Involvement. There are more than 300 registered student organizations at DePaul.
