Ashlyn Hendrix, a senior communication and media studies major from Marshall, Ill., and WZIS received Sycamore Leadership awards from the Office of Campus Life. 

Hendrix received the Outstanding Student Leader Award. She received this award for her leadership shown in her involvement in Sycamore Video. Hendrix joined Sycamore Video in fall 2019 and has worked as the general manager since fall 2020. 

“I try to always lead by example, and I think most of our members appreciate that,” Hendrix said. “I couldn't have done this without the support of every one of our members, or without my boss, Mr. Jeffrey Perkins, student video production manager.”

WZIS was awarded Program of the Year for their growth and accomplishments throughout the year. “I’m so proud of our entire team at WZIS.  It’s been a challenging year but the students have been incredible,” Rich Green, general manager of WZIS, said.
