Pam Parry, chair of the Communication Studies Department, was awarded the Arthur J. Kaul Fellowship by the School of Mass Communication and Journalism at the University of Southern Mississippi at an April 25 banquet in Hattiesburg, Miss. The fellowship is named for a beloved media history professor at Southern Mississippi who died in 2008, and it is designed to help a doctoral candidate who is near the end of his or her program.
Parry is finishing her dissertation titled, “The PR President: How Eisenhower Transformed Political Communication,” and plans to graduate in May 2013. In 2009, the school named Parry its top mass communication/journalism graduate student and gave her the Gene Wiggins Fellowship for research.
