Columbus, Ohio— Cheyenne Meek, a member of Ohio State’s swim team, earned the Joseph S. Myers Award from Ohio State’s School of Communication.
Meek received this award as the top graduating senior in the communications program.
This award was established in 1954 through a bequest from “Chief” Myers, who served as first director of the School. He was an 1887 alumnus of OSU and returned to campus to head the new School in 1914. The scholarship is awarded for academic achievement and professional promise and is given to the outstanding Communication graduating Senior. The recipient’s name is engraved on the Joseph S. Myers plaque in the School.
Meek has twice competed at Big Ten Championships in her career and last summer she participated in Olympic Trials. Last month at Big Tens she swam in the 50, 100, and 200 yard freestyle.
