MSJ student earns award in U.S. Department of Energy competition
Journalism graduate student Caitlin Worrell is the only communicator on WVU’s EcoCAR3 team, but she has played a major role in its success. The team just returned from the U.S. Department of Energy’s EcoCAR3 competition where they earned 4th Place Overall and 3rd Place for “Best Communication Program.” Worrell, a native of Virginia Beach, Virginia, serves as the team’s communications manager. She handles social media, marketing and promotions, and performs community outreach. Sixteen North American Universities competed in EcoCAR3, which challenges participants to redesign a Chevrolet Camaro to reduce its environmental impact while maintaining its performance.
