Journalist named to endowed professorship

Bonnie Newman Davis has been named the first News & Record-Janice Bryant Howroyd Professor of Journalism at N.C. A&T.  She previously was an associate professor in the School of Mass Communications at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond.  Before going into higher education, she spent more than 20 years as an editor and reporter with The Richmond-Times Dispatch and newspapers in Kentucky, Michigan and North Carolina.  She is an A&T graduate.

Last spring, Davis was named the 2011 Journalism Educator of the Year by the National Association of Black Journalists.   Virginia Commonwealth has more on her background, and the Maynard Institute has more on her appointment.

  1. What an excellent addition to the A&T Mass Comm faculty. Bonnie’s journalistic experience, her passion for A&T and her innate pragmatism means that our students will get an outstanding education. She’s tough to the bone.
