Seventh Annual Communication Awards to Recognize 72 Winners

April 14, 2014

The seventh Annual Communication Awards will be held Friday, May 2, at Atlantic Cape Community College. The event will feature student-produced videos and performances by “Communication Major of the Year” nominees. Individual students, alumni, faculty and media professionals will be awarded for their work in the field.

JoJo and Scotty of 100.7 WZXL-FM will host the show, which will also feature: Michelle Dawn Mooney, NBC-40 news anchor; Dr. Joy Jones-Carmack, Mrs. New Jersey 2013; Nannette LoBiondo Galloway, Alumna of the Year; Larry Litwin, Rowan University professor emeritus and Atlantic Cape adjunct; and Keith Forrest, Atlantic Cape “Faculty Member of the Year.”

For the first time, Alumni Pioneer Awards will be given out. These will be awarded to Arielle Reamer ’11 and Madison Russ ’12. This will be Russ’ 15th Communication Award—a record for the program.

The top award winners include: Pat Campbell of Dorothy, Briar Gibbons of Egg Harbor City, Max Fineran of Galloway, Richard Mead of Dorothy and Annabeth Gibson of Cape May Court House.

Two sibling teams are among the notable winners, including twin sisters Casey and Taylor Bailey of Hammonton, and Annabeth and Jon Gibson of Cape May Court House.

Elizabeth Volpe of Seaville, a teacher at Middle Township High School, will be honored as a Faculty Pioneer for her contributions to education and the arts.

There will be a reception preceding the show at 6 p.m. in the lobby of the Walter Edge Theater at the Mays Landing Campus, 5100 Black Horse Pike.
