Goshen College’s student-run radio station has been getting a lot of attention during the past few years, winning award after award both statewide and nationally. Jason Samuel, general manager at 91.1 The Globe, and six of his students recently traveled to the Big Apple where the station won the Abraham and Borst Award for Best College Radio Station in the Nation for the second time in three years.
Now that they’re all back home, the Goshen City Council is ready to honor the radio station and its accomplishments with a resolution. If you want to be there to support 91.1 The Globe, the city council’s meeting will be at 7 p.m. tonight, March 5, at the council chambers, 111 E. Jefferson St. in Goshen.
I copied the text of the resolution below:
A resolution of the Goshen City Council celebrating national and state recognitions received by the Goshen College radio station, 91.1 WGCS-FM, hereafter referred to as “The Globe.”
Whereas “The Globe” was the 2011 and 2013 winner of the Abraham and Borst Award for Best College Radio Station in the Nation by the Intercollegiate Broadcasting System; and
Whereas “The Globe” was the 2012 and 2013 winner of the Indiana Radio School of the Year award presented by the Indiana Association of School Broadcasters; and
Whereas Professor Jason Samuel, General Manager of “The Globe”, has shown exemplary leadership in directing the 30 students who operate the station; and
Whereas students Jimmy Cassody and Kelsey Morris were named National Best On-Air Personality and State Best On-Air Personality respectively; and
Whereas Goshen College students have done an outstanding job, allowing “The Globe” to achieve its success and in turn help gain national recognition for our community.
Now therefore, be it resolved by the Common Council of the City of Goshen that it recognizes and honors “The Globe”, its General Manager and all students involved with its operation for their high achievement. Further we ask all residents to join in celebrating these awards and recognition for yet another uncommon gem in this, our uncommonly great “Maple City”.
This resolution shall become effective on the date of passage.
