Finally, Lena Wickens ‘23, our editor and chief, who is a double major in Public Relations and Communication Studies, received the Lois Bailey McGaan Prize alongside Gabrielle Crothers ‘23 for excellence in the field of communication studies. Both of these individuals have contributed a lot to their respective areas of study. ““My last four years in the comm department have been a major highlight in my time at Monmouth. Not only has the department allowed me to grow intellectually and personally, the faculty provided a space where precious memories were made and life long friendships were created”, says Wickens. We wish to congratulate them on their achievements on Scholars Day.
