CJC Alum Inducted Into 2018 NAHJ Hall of Fame

Marques began her career at the Miami Herald as an intern, working her way up to managing editor and now executive editor and senior vice president for news. She is only the second women to hold the executive editor position and she is the first Hispanic editor of the Miami Herald. Marques is an advocate for more women in journalism and serves on the advisory councils of the Journalism and Women Symposium and the Lilian Lodge Kopenhaver Center for Women in Communication at Florida International University.
Marques will be honored along with fellow inductees Rosental Alves, Alberto Ibargüen and Mc Nelly Torres, at the NAHJ gala in July.
