Journalism student wins award

Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s Kimiya Shokoohi one of six to receive The Jack Webster Foundation Student Award.

Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s Kimiya Shokoohi was one of six students awarded The Jack Webster Foundation Student Journalism Award Oct. 24. The distinction – one of 99 presented to B.C. students since 2001 – includes $2,000 towards Shokoohi’s tuition. 
 “I am so incredibly humbled to be recognized with this very prestigious award,” Shokoohi, who is in her fourth year of Kwantlen’s Bachelor of Journalism program, said in a statement. “It is an amazing feeling to know that what you’re doing is good enough to be noticed by some of the best in the business. I’m completely grateful.”
 Shokoohi hopes to pursue a career in sports journalism. The Jack Webster Foundation was established in 1986 to recognize and encourage excellence in B.C.-based journalism.
Kwantlen – with campuses in Richmond, Surrey, Cloverdale and Langley – has been serving the Metro Vancouver region for 30 years.
