Alum Scott Meyer Receives Award of Excellence

As part of Spring Celebration, the SJMC Alumni Society Board gives its Award of Excellence to an alum with a distinguished career, either locally or nationally. In 2011, communications guru Scott Meyer received that accolade. "I know how important this award is, and it is very humbling," he said.
