Student Hometown News

News releases for hometown newspapers can be prepared by the Western Carolina University Office of News Services when students receive awards of academic achievement, earn scholarships or are initiated into honorary societies.

Each spring, WCU’s colleges and the Kimmel School hold ceremonies to present various scholarships, awards and other honors to students. Students who are being recognized at one of the springtime college ceremonies or the Kimmel School ceremony who are interested in having a news release sent to a hometown newspaper should go this web page.  Students who are participating in the Undergraduate Expo or the Graduate Research Symposium should go to that same web page.

All other students interested in informing their hometown newspapers of accomplishments should complete this Hometown News Release form (PDF) and return it to the department or university official who asked them to complete it. The university representative who made the request should then verify the information and forward the form to the Office of News Services.
