Sylvia Masuda, a former student of mine (Comm 358 and Comm 317) at Cal State Fullerton won third place in the AEJMC Logo Competition. The logo was made for the annual conference taking place in Denver, 2010. I assigned the competition as a final exam in Sylvia’s class and encouraged her to make a few revisions during inter-session before entering her work to the competition. I won’t tell you how quickly she drew the logo; and I’m so proud of her for placing in the contest. Next year we’re taking first.
