Former Courier contributor earns distinction at UNT


Former Courier contributor, Brady Lewis Keane of Bandera has been named to the President’s List for the 2016 fall semester at the University of North Texas (UNT) in recognition of his outstanding academic work.
Brady is a 2015 graduate of Bandera High School. He is the son of Eileen and Paul Keane of Bandera.
To be named to the President’s List, undergraduates must have earned a 4.0 grade-point average with a course load of 12 or more hours during the semester.
The faculty and staff are proud of Brady’s accomplishments and wish him success in completing the requirements for his degree and in pursuing his future plans. As a student-focused public research university, UNT is dedicated to Brady’s further growth and learning. It is truly our aim to help him find his way to becoming an engaged, thoughtful citizen of the world.
UNT is one of Texas' largest universities, offering 101 bachelor's, 82 master's and 38 doctoral degree programs. Many of these programs are nationally and internationally recognized.
Courier owner and publisher Gail Joiner was delighted to hear about Keane's accomplishments. "Brady came on board as an intern with the Courier in December of 2011 and served as a sports writer for four years. He wanted to add some diversity to the subjects of his writing, acquire some hands-on experience with schedules and deadlines and prepare a portfolio for college,” said Joiner.
"The Courier is very proud of Brady's accomplishments. He has met his goal of attending Mayborn School of Journalism at the University of North Texas in Denton to perfect his journalistic skills. He was the recipient of multiple awards and distinctions during high school and is obviously laying a track toward his degrees in broadcast, digital and print journalism with certification in sports journalism," Joiner said.
The Courier Staff are confident that one day we'll see Keane's face behind the sports desk of some network and hear his blog and tweets being quoted by sports notables. And yes, we'll be proud!
