Vanderbilt, Union students ranked among nation's top 100 student journos

Two students at Tennessee schools, Vanderbilt's Glenna DeRoy and Union University's Brittany Howerton, made UWire's list of the top 100. Vanderbilt student media adviser Chris Carroll says DeRoy "possesses an uncommon mix of intelligence, ability, initiative and reliability." Union communications arts professor Michael Chute says Howerton, who covered the deadly tornadoes that struck the campus in February, "exemplified the very best of journalism in that she put her own struggles aside and worked tirelessly to inform a nation clamoring for information about the storm and its effects."
