Ithaca College sophomore Danielle Pluchinsky was one of 14 young women awarded a scholarship from New York Women in Communications. A sports media student in the college’s Roy H. Park School of Communications, Pluchinsky received the Ann Liguori Foundation Sports Media Scholarship.
Each year, New York Women in Communications awards scholarships to graduating high school seniors and undergraduate and graduate students who intend to pursue or further a career in communications. The scholarships are awarded to students of academic excellence, need and a demonstrated commitment to the field of communications.
“I feel incredibly honored to win the scholarship,” said Pluchinsky. “I’m the third person in a row from Ithaca College to win this specific scholarship, so it’s an amazing feeling to be included in the same group as these other amazing women.”
Ithaca College students have been well represented among New York Women in Communications scholarship winners, with 16 recipients in the past four years.
