OSU-Tulsa faculty Dr. Jami Fullerton, Peggy Layman Welch chair of strategic communications, and Dr. Lori McKinnon, associate professor of strategic communications, were recently honored at the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication’s (AEJMC) annual conference in Washington, D.C.

Fullerton and McKinnon, who teach undergraduate and graduate courses in the OSU School of Media and Strategic Communications, earned “Top Paper” honors from the public relations division for their research study, “Public Relations Students’ Ethics: An Examination of Attitude and Intended Behaviors.” The paper was among the nearly 900 academic research studies presented at the conference by journalism and mass communication university faculty and students across the country.

Fullerton and her research partner, Dr. Alice Kendrick, professor of advertising at the Temerlin Advertising Institute at Southern Methodist University’s Meadows School of the Arts, also received the AEJMC’s 2013 Advertising Division Outstanding Service Award, which recognizes a career-long commitment to the organization.

Fullerton has served on the executive committee for the AEJMC Advertising Division as a research chair and division head. She and Kendrick also serve as co-editors of the Journal of Advertising Education, which is published by the organization.
