Lew Klein Alumni in the Media Awards
The Lew Klein Alumni in the Media Awards program honors SMC alumni for their achievements in media and communication. It was established through the generosity of H.F. (Gerry) and Marguerite Lenfest and Walter and Leonore Annenberg through the Annenberg Foundation. The award’s namesake, Lew Klein, has taught at the School of Media and Communication for more than 60 years. In addition, Lew Klein Hall—the main performance space in Temple Performing Arts Center—was named in his honor.
