NACC Alumnus Wins National Award

Northeast Alabama Community College alumnus Jeremy Campbell was honored recently with the Salute to Excellence Award in International Reporting by the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) at its annual gala celebration in Philadelphia. He was recognized for "Stories from Uganda," a series of television reports Campbell shot in Africa.

NABJ recognizes journalism that best covered the black experience. The competition honors work from print, television, and radio. Campbell's stories were judged against submissions from the nation's largest television markets.

Currently he's working on-air at WTVT, the top-rated news station in Tampa. Before his career took him to Florida, Campbell reported for television stations in Louisiana, where he won multiple awards from the Louisiana Associated Press, and Birmingham, where the Alabama Broadcasters Association named him best reporter in the state. Campbell has also earned a prestigious Edward R. Murrow Award.

Campbell is a graduate of Scottsboro High School and attended NACC before graduating from Auburn University. He is the son of Dr. and Mrs. David Campbell of Langston.
