Jodeane Newcomb Brownlee, organization advisor for MavRadio in the School of Communication, has been named Student Organization Advisor of the Year.
Jodeane is one of the founders who began the MavRadio program with the help of one other person. Together, they dreamed of operating a student-run radio station, and through hard work and determination made it a reality. When it began, MavRadio had two students. Today, the staff has grown to nearly twenty.
Jodeane is described by many as "mama bear" because she welcomes her students into her family; guiding, supporting, and even feeding them occasionally.
Her students share that Jodeane is always looking for learning opportunities for them. Whether it be an opportunity to represent MavRadio at a school event, organizing a fundraiser, or celebrating College Radio Day, she encourages every staff member to reach their full potential, and encourages them to continue their education past their bachelor’s degree.
This recognition is one of my career highlights. The fact that the staff of MavRadio.FM value my contributions to our group, enough to nominate me for this honor, means everything. It's not often I'm left speechless, but I was when I learned about the award."
