New York Times correspondent Adam B. Ellick — whose reporting first brought Pakistani schoolgirl Malala Yousafzai to the attention of the world — has accepted an invitation to deliver the main address at Ithaca College’s 2016 Commencement ceremony, scheduled for May 22. Ellick is a 1999 journalism graduate of the Roy H. Park School of Communications.
The Ithacan was honored with both the 2015 Newspaper Pacemaker Award and the 2015 Online Pacemaker Award for overall excellence by the Associated Collegiate Press at the Fall National College Media Convention in Austin, Texas, on October 31.
The Pacemaker, one of the nation's most prestigious college journalism awards, is widely regarded as "the Pulitzer Prize of collegiate journalism." Founded in 1921, the ACP is the oldest and largest membership organization for college student journalists in the country.
