The award citation describes Perkins Bowen as “tireless” and “passionate” in her “dedication and commitment to teaching and improving scholastic journalism.” Perkins Bowen was nominated by several members of the Journalism Educators Association from Indiana. She attended the award program at Ball State to receive the award and made brief remarks.
