Journalism student Olivia Arnold, ’18, is one of the three recipients of the prestigious Northeastern University Harold D. Hodgkinson Achievement Award.

A University-wide honor, the Hodgkinson Award is “one of the highest honors that a senior at Northeastern University can receive.” Merit is based on distinguished scholastic achievement, as well as consideration of character, personality, qualities of leadership, cooperative work experience and service in voluntary organizations and activities.

The School of Journalism nominated Arnold as a candidate for the Hodgkinson Award in a letter to the University. In addition to Arnold’s selection, she’ll be receiving a reward of $2,000.

Arnold is the second Hodgkinson Award recipient within the School of Journalism in as many years.

“This is an amazing accomplishment for our students and for our department,” Professor Carlene Hempel wrote in an email congratulating Arnold. “What an unbelievable triumph!!”
