Mary Beth Winkowski
Communications Specialist, Froedtert Health/St. Joseph’s Hospital (West Bend, WI)
In the late 1960s, the world was changing dramatically. Civil rights, protests and the politics of war occupied our minds and the pages of the Tribune, along with basketball, academics and the social scene. Our Marquette journalism education took place on the streets as well as in the classroom. We covered courts, marches, elections and a visit by the Apollo astronauts. Marquette professors taught us to ask questions that count and punch out stories that are fair, accurate and make sense. Now, even as tweets replace type, those values remain important to us as communicators in a changing world.
