The Clyde D. Lowery and George B. Morley Awards

The Clyde D. Lowery Award for Professionalism and Integrity in Journalism

This award was established in honor of the Wildcat’s first fulltime publications director and adviser. Lowery, who served form 1973-1989, and again in 1992, was mentor to hundreds of student journalists and editors, many of whom are now at the top of their careers in newsrooms throughout the world. During the “Clyde Years,” the Wildcat moved increasingly (and inevitably) toward organizational and financial independence and grew into the paper it is today, one of the largest and most successful college dailies.

  1. I was a Wildcat Salesman from 1988 – 1991. I have fond memories of George. He was a great man and a real mentor to me. I am so happy that his impact on the Wildcat will never be forgotten. – G. Andrew Kaminsky
