Kwantlen Polytechnic University (KPU) journalism student Hayley Woodin has been honoured with a Jack Webster Student Journalism Award.

The fourth-year student was one of five BC students to receive this prestigious award and one of three students to receive a $2000 scholarship towards her tuition.

“I have attended the Webster Awards ceremony almost every year since I started at Kwantlen, but being honoured at them alongside such talented students and accomplished journalists is quite humbling,” said Woodin.

“This award and scholarship mean a lot to me both personally and professionally. Such recognition re-affirms my desire to pursue my goals, and to do so with more passion, enthusiasm and effort.”

Woodin will be interning at CTV before leaving to study international journalism in England in January 2013.

Her ultimate career goal is to work in broadcast television as a foreign correspondent, covering global conflict.

KPU’s bachelor of journalism program consists of 120 credits of coursework focusing on journalism and communication studies.
