Bonnie Stewart, the Daily Titan’s adviser and lecturer in the Department of Communications for the last 5 ½ years, retired in December. Stewart leaves an impressive legacy, including appreciative students who praised her mentoring and professionalism. The Daily Titan won nearly 100 awards during Stewart’s tenure, including several first-place, national awards for overall best student newspaper.
Dozens of current and former students threw Stewart a goodbye party in December in the Daily Titan newsroom. Last spring, Stewart was recognized as the Department of Communication’s Distinguished Faculty Member and won the College of Communication’s Rick D. Pullen Academic Excellence Award.
