In working for The Echo student newspaper, many students find more than just a tremendous experiential learning opportunity—they find community and a sense of purpose. I’m proud to be the faculty adviser of this award-winning student publication. The Echo has collected more than 30 California College Media Awards for Excellence in the last 10 years and has placed in categories ranging from best breaking news coverage, to best podcast, to best sports photo. These students can do it all! It is through their drive and innovation that we now have El Eco, our Spanish-language supplement, which is also award winning. Please join me in supporting these amazing students by going to Click “other” and enter Echo to directly support the editorially independent student newspaper.
