Logan McGee ‘20, an integrated media major of East Canton, Ohio, submitted a project that earned himself and WRMU a national finalist spot in the category of Best Station Imaging. McGee completed the project as part of his position as WRMU promotions director. The project showcased Mount Union Alumni.
