Professor receives press award

The New Jersey Press Association (NJPA) honors Robert C. Cole, professor of journalism at the College, for his 30 years of “dedicated service to the newspaper industry of New Jersey” at its annual meeting last week. John J. O’Brien, executive director of NJPA, said Cole’s students have won more NJPA scholarships than those from any other eligible college. “This includes schools with 10 times the enrollment of his program,” O’Brien said. Cole said the totals are 47 scholarships in 28 years. Shown at the meeting are, from left, O’Brien, Cole and Tom Cafferty, NJPA general counsel. The meeting was held onboard a cruise ship on the Hudson River.
