Recent ONU graduate earns photography honor

Recent Ohio Northern University graduate McKenzie Wilson, a native of Marysville, Ohio, placed third in the “Best Sports News Photo” category during a recent College Media Association meeting. The Pinnacle Awards recognize excellence in the field of college media.

Wilson, who is a graduate of Fairbanks High School in Milford Center, won the award for her work as a photographer for ONU’s student newspaper, The Northern Review – specifically, for her action photo of an Ohio Northern volleyball match.

Wilson, a 2018 graduate of the university, majored in communication studies at ONU and was a member of Mortar Board and Omicron Delta Kappa, both academic honorary organizations.

She is currently employed with a non-profit agency that is attached to the Department of Human Services in Fort Collins, Colo. She plans to attend graduate school beginning fall 2020 to study clinical mental health counseling.
