LOGAN—Storee Powell, 2011 summa cum laude JCOM Graduate of the Year, is the only Utah State University student journalist whose regional Mark of Excellence Award winner has won a Society of Professional Journalists national award.

Her piece for Utah Public Radio was named one of the three top student radio news stories in the United States by the nation SPJ in Indianapolis.

Powell won four regional Mark of Excellence Awards at the Intermountain West Society of Professional Journalists conference in Salt Lake City in April, including a first place for her UPR story, “Circle the Wagons,” which this week has been named a national award-winner.

The Society of Professional Journalist announcement:
