LEXINGTON (April 7, 2017) — Marjorie Kirk, a University of Kentucky journalism and international studies senior, was named one of Glamour’s 2017 College Women of the Year.
Kirk is editor-in-chief of the Kentucky Kernel for the 2016-17 academic year and was chosen for her pursuit of open records from UK. In January, a judge ruled in favor of UK’s position in the case involving the privacy of victim survivors of sexual misconduct. The Kernel is appealing.
Kirk, along with nine other winners, is profiled in the May issue of Glamour. The story is available online at www.glamour.com/story/2017-college-women-of-the-year-winners.
All winners receive a cash prize, a trip to New York City, introductions to top professionals in a variety of fields, national recognition in the magazine, and hair styling and makeup for the awards-ceremony luncheon.
