Berry College adviser and technology specialist Steven Hames won a 2016 Honor Roll Broadcast Adviser Award from the College Media Association for his work with Berry’s Viking Fusion multimedia website.

“It’s humbling to receive an award for doing a job that I love,” Hames said. “Looking back at Viking Fusion’s accomplishments during my five years at Berry, it makes me proud that I was able to guide them to such success.”

Viking Fusion, for which Hames has served as adviser since 2011, is a student-run enterprise intended to inform and entertain Berry students and the larger community surrounding the school. The site has won multiple awards during Hames’ tenure, including Southeast Regional Emmy Awards, the Society of Professional Journalists' Mark of Excellence Awards, the CMA Pinnacle Awards and the College Broadcasters Inc. National Student Production Awards. Hames earned the Honor Roll Adviser Role by distinguishing himself through service.

“I get to see up close every day his dedication to our students, his leadership of our co-curricular Viking Fusion multimedia news and entertainment hub, and his collaboration across the college to create teaching and learning opportunities for our majors,” Berry department of communication chair Brian Carroll said.
