Tennessee State University has announced that its multimedia newsroom will be named in honor of the late Getahn Ward, a long-time adjunct professor of journalism at the school. Ward died in December at the age of 45. (See JBHE post.)

Tameka Winston, chair of the department of communications at Tennessee State University, said that “this servant leader, journalist, man of faith, and professor made a huge impact on our students.
