2019 Friend of Scholastic Journalism

Suzette Heiman is a Professor of Strategic Communication at the Missouri School of Journalism who has been named the 2019 MJEA Friend of Scholastic Journalism for her work in supporting student journalists from all corners of Missouri.

Nominator Michelle Kennedy has this to say:

“Suzette Heiman has done an amazing job of supporting scholastic journalism across the state.  This past October she organized a day of journalism opportunities for approximately  40 students from Grain Valley High School, giving these students the opportunity to visit MU, listen to photojournalist Lois Raimondo speak, see her work in the McDougall Gallery, and speak with student journalists at the Columbia Missourian.  If Suzette hadn’t planned this event, my students at GVHS would not have been able to experience such an awesome opportunity.

Suzette has also done a tremendous job with organizing things for MJEA this year.  MJEA Leadership Day went off without a hitch with her support and organization.  The sessions for students were timely and interesting for those in attendance.

Her support of the MJEA JOY Scholarship proves her dedication to scholastic journalism students in Missouri.  I believe Suzette Heiman would be a worthy recipient of the MJEA Friend it Scholastic Journalism Award.”
