Maggie_Dickman headshotMaggie Dickman, a current sophomore magazine major, has earned the Karyl Van Memorial Scholarship and will start working in the E.T. Meredith Center for Magazine Studies this fall.

Maggie is no stranger to the Magazine Center. This past fall, she helped updated the Center’s website and assisted in organizing the Visiting Professionals Series. “I am thrilled to be returning to the E.T. Meredith Center for Magazine Studies in the fall,” Maggie says. “I’m appreciative of the opportunity I had to work with my professors and classmates last semester, sharing my passion for the magazine department with prospective journalism students. We have such a strong program here at Drake, and I am excited to continue to support the center on campus through my work as the Karyl Van scholarship recipient.”

Right now, Maggie is studying abroad in London and interning at luxury travel magazine This Is London. When she returns for the summer, Maggie will serve as an employee communications intern at Principal Financial Group in Des Moines, and in the fall, she will start as the Copy-Flow Coordinator in Meredith Corporation’s Special Interest Media copy edit department.

Congratulations, Maggie!
