Reynolds Faculty Fellowships; Carol Junge Loomis Faculty Fellow
Established in 2014 by the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation, the Reynolds Faculty Fellowship was established to help recruit and retain talented faculty at the Missouri School of Journalism. The Fellowship provides support for scholarship and research, in addition to salary enhancement. Donald W. Reynolds was a 1927 graduate of the Missouri School of Journalism and spent his life building the Donrey Media Group, ultimately owning more than 100 enterprises in the newspaper, radio, television, cable television and outdoor advertising industries. The Foundation is allowing up to 50 third-party donors to create individual Fellowships. The Carol Loomis Faculty Fellow is named for Carol Loomis, BJ ’51, one of the industry’s most respected financial journalists, who retired in 2014 as senior editor-at-large of Fortune magazine.
