Dean Stone Celebration
Each spring the School of Journalism celebrates its founder, Dean Arthur Stone, and its current students with an annual scholarship and awards banquet.
Thanks to generous endowments and donor contributions, the school awarded nearly $170,000 in scholarships at this year's banquet, with most of the money going to students entering their senior year.
In addition to a banquet, we feature a special public lecture the night before. This past spring we were thrilled to welcome Dean Baquet, executive editor of the New York Times. His lecture was titled "Quality Journalism in the Digital Age: Challenges & Opportunities." Previous Dean Stone speakers have included: former NBC News anchor Tom Brokaw; Judy Woodruff of PBS Newshour; Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Eli Sanders; and Chris Jones, editor-in-chief of National Geographic magazine.
