John Jeter, Adjunct Instructor of Music Business at Converse, won two journalism awards from the South Carolina Press Association at their annual meeting.
The two feature stories Jeter received recognition for were published in the Greenville Journal. “Honor Flight: From a grateful nation, welcome home” takes readers on an emotional journey with Jeter and his father, Col. Jack Jeter, in Washington, D.C., to honor veterans.
“Firefighters battle the heat, on the job and in the kitchen” takes readers behind the scenes of a firehouse to the station kitchen, where first responders cook for each other and connect over food and conversation.
Jeter, the winner of Converse’s 2017 Above & Beyond Award, is currently working with Converse Music Business students who are spearheading the Rock Solid Music Festival at FR8yard on April 19, 2023.
A portion of the proceeds from the event will support Converse University Valkyrie Supply.
