KMUW assistant news director and host of Soulsations Carla Eckels received the Wayne Carlisle Distinguished Service Award Wednesday from Wichita State University.

The award is the highest honor available for an unclassified professional at the university. It recognizes the employee who best emulates the care and dedication of former Shocker Wayne Carlisle.

Carla joined KMUW in November 1996 as a reporter before being named assistant news director in 2014. In addition to her service award, Carla also received a WSU Shocker Pride award. She was nominated for the award by her colleagues at KMUW.

KMUW wants to congratulate Carla on all of her achievements and thank her for being such a wonderful part of the team!
