CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- University of Northern Iowa students Lindsay Kalvig and Edward Kelly have received $600 Emma Jackson Baty Scholarships for student journalists for the 2005-2006 academic year. Both are staff members of the Northern Iowan, the university's student newspaper.

The scholarship fund was established in 1984 by Jackson Baty and family in memory of his mother, Emma Jackson Baty, to further the education and training of UNI students serving on the campus newspaper staff. Jackson Baty is an emeritus professor of education at UNI and former faculty adviser to the Northern Iowan.

Kalvig, a junior graphic design major from Manly, served this year as the Northern Iowan's features editor. She will be next year's executive editor. Kelly, a junior English major from Marion, has been a sports, news and features writer, and a columnist for the past three semesters. He will be a section editor next year.
