Gutenberg honorees


The ACU Department of Journalism and Mass Communication will honor three distinguished alumni during the 24th annual Gutenberg Celebration.

Part of Homecoming week, the Gutenberg dessert reception and awards ceremony will take place at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 20 in the Hunter Welcome Center.

This year’s honorees are Alicia Pierce, director of communication for the Texas Secretary of State in Austin; Luke Hejl , principle and general manager of Social Factor in Fort Worth; and Jennifer Allen, founder and CEO of Asperger's 101, a non-profit resource related to high-functioning autism and Asperger's syndrome.

“We created the award to recognize alumni for their professional achievement,” said Dr. Cheryl Bacon, chair of the JMC department. “The event is also a great way for students to network and make job connections.”

Honorees are nominated by alumni and faculty and must have graduated more than 10 years ago to be eligible.

Tickets to the celebration are $40 each. To purchase a ticket or find out more about the honorees, click here
