Sam Coleman, mass communication student at St. Louis Community College- Florissant Valley, recently was named the 2015 Phillip H. Grogg Award winner. Coleman, is currently the production and public affairs director at KCFV, Florissant Valley's student-run radio station. 

“He has been instrumental in getting fresh student produced content on the air,” said Paul Huddleston, KCFV manager. “Sam also devotes a lot of his time helping mass communications students.”

Also known as “jazz hands”, Coleman has also been involved in the voice acting collaboration with the students taking animation classes. He anticipates graduating in Spring 2016 and looks forward to working in the voiceover industry.

Other nominees included Rachel Jackson and DeJuan Dubose. 

The Grogg Award was established in 1983 in memory of Phillip Grogg, a student manager of KCFV who died in the fall of 1982 as a result of injuries sustained in an automobile accident. After Grogg's death, his mother Norma Grogg, gathered his unspent work study checks and donated them to the station. KCFV used that money to start a scholarship fund in Grogg's honor. Every spring, an outstanding student who demonstrates excellence in the areas of broadcasting skills and leadership is recognized.
