Mike Midkiff, Director of Public Relations in Enrollment Management and Marketing, received the third place award.
Lueder’s “Reel Ryan’s Movie Reviews” blog, brings a unique look at movies through the perspective of an actor who watches a ton of films, and also has a local Marshall perspective.
Midkiff’s “From the Hilltop” blog, is about the good that happens at ETBU through the lives of students, faculty, and staff.
