In 75 years, countless people have supported and helped shaped NCSMA. Without these individuals and their recognition of the importance of student media, the association would not be where it is now — celebrating its 75th year.

We are immeasurably grateful for their effect on our past and present. Please help us add more names to our list. To nominate a legend, contact the NCSMA office at
