San Diego Native is NABJ’s 2013 Student Journalist of the Year

From humble byline beginnings at Steele Canyon High School in east San Diego, Marissa A. Evans has blossomed into a rising journalism star. She is currently a senior at Milwaukee’s Marquette University, where she launched a local student chapter for the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) and also started online magazine In Hue.

This summer, in the middle of her latest intern assignment, Evans will be traveling to the NABJ’s annual convention in Orlando to accept the 2013 Student Journalist of the Year prize. From a recent report in her hometown newspaper:

Evans is slated to intern this summer at The Seattle Times as a metro reporter. She previously interned at U-T San Diego in 2010 and also at The Washington Post, The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and The Star Tribune in Minneapolis. She also is an alumna of The New York Times Student Journalism Institute.

FishbowlLA would like to offer our heartiest congrats to Evans on this great honor, and we look forward to seeing where she winds up launching her professional career. Marquette grads in the media include Sports Illustrated columnist Steve Rushin and Chicago Cubs TV play-by-play announcer Len Kasper.
