2024 Duda Awards

Today, the School of Communication and the Arts (SCA) held our annual SCA Soiree. It's a way for our students, faculty, and staff to look back at all of the wonderful content creation that transpired over the academic year (see the post "What a Year!" for some examples from 90.5 WERG).

For the radio station, the annual Duda Awards are named in honor of WERG's former chief engineer, the late Dr. John Duda. The photo shows John in his natural element: surrounded by wires, parts, gadgets, and meters of all shapes and varieties. John was the kind of teacher every student hopes to find: a kind, caring person who loves sharing their knowledge. And for Radio/TV Engineering (HB-340 in the old course catalogues), Dr. Duda wrote the book... literally (it is 572 pages long and none of it is filler).
