TMN wins state-wide awards

There are a lot of things I could share about attending the Missouri College Media Association Conference.

For starters, it was a long weekend for many of us at Truman Media Network who made the trip to Springfield, Missouri. Though the drive was bearable, the conference included a full day of meeting new people and attending workshops centered around broadcast and journalism, which I’m sure we could all agree is tiring work.

It was also a great experience to see what other schools are doing across the state and how we could improve our own media network here. While we are proud of the work we do day in and day out, it’s nice to get ideas from others.

I could also share how much fun it was to serve as the MCMA vice president this year, and how proud I am of future Editor-in-Chief Ryan Pivoney for also serving as vice president next year.

And, of course, there’s a certain excitement in attending the MCMA Banquet and being recognized for the hard work we put in. But all of that would be nothing without the support of Truman State University and our readers.

Thank you for allowing us to serve this community and for celebrating with us!
