SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Former Daily Iowan employee and longtime member of the paper’s advisory board Phyllis Fleming will be inducted into the University of Iowa School of Journalism and Mass Communication Hall of Fame.

Fleming, 75, worked for the Cedar Rapids Gazette for more than four decades; she retired in 2002 as its deputy managing editor. She has served on Student Publications Inc. board, which oversees the DI, for more than 20 years.

UI faculty voted to induct Fleming into the Hall of Fame and presented her a plaque on Thursday.

Daily Iowan Publisher Bill Casey said Fleming has great integrity, wisdom, and common sense.

“It’s well-deserved,” Casey said. “She is a great newspaper woman and someone that people at the Gazette depended on.”
