On Saturday, July 13, CCI’s Bonnie Hufford was the honoree of the 35th annual Front Page Follies, an event hosted by the East Tennessee Society of Professional Journalists at UTK’s Carousel Theatre. In addition to roasting state and local newsmakers and spoofing news stories, the event raised scholarship funds for journalism and electronic media students at the University of Tennessee and Pellissippi State. Charlie Daniel, Knoxville News Sentinel editorial cartoonist, created the poster for the event highlighting Hufford’s method of editing with a blue pen instead of the more common red pen.
Hufford, an instructor in the School of Journalism and Electronic Media, has also been named a finalist for the Knoxville YWCA’s 2013 Tribute to Women event. She will be recognized for her outstanding accomplishments at an Awards Ceremony on August 15 at Knoxville’s Bijou Theatre. Six of the 21 Tribute to Women finalists will be named as award winners at the ceremony (see https://www.knoxnews.com/photos/2013/jul/12/366763/ and http://www.knoxnews.com/news/2013/jul/13/ywca-knoxville-announces-tribute-to-women/ ).
