Publications Student of the Month October

Publications Student of the Month October

Congratulations to our Publications Division Student of the month, Robert Gale from St. Petersburg College.  Robert was nominated by his advisor Professor Cindy Kuropas.  Here’s what Professor Kuropas shared with us:  

 

“Robert has been a continuing contributor to our online student newspaper. He has covered several sporting events, and his sports photography won first place at the Florida Society of News Editors student competition in Spring 2016. He has a passion for writing and photography and hopes to pursue journalism as a career. Despite having disabilities, he has not allowed them to hold back his growth. He is a meticulous student and a hard worker.


Robert has become a regular with our newspaper and he is known by our coaches due to his participation at sporting events, providing coverage and promoting our athletics programs. He takes initiative and seeks opportunities for his own growth, such as contacting and interviewing a gold-medal Olympic swimmer entirely on his own. He also offers suggestions on how to grow our newspaper and reaches out to fellow students to encourage their participation. He is an outstanding student and role model.”

 

Congratulations to this outstanding student, and our thanks to Professor Kuropas for taking the time to recognize him!
