Fleischaker/Greene Award for Courageous International Reporting


Jon Fleischaker and Kim Greene created the Fleischaker/Greene Award for Courageous International Reporting as part of a wider program funding First Amendment issues at Western Kentucky University. The prestigious award recognizes a journalist who often reports under dangerous circumstances to protect freedom of speech and lead efforts to better understand populations that are underreported. Past recipients include Jineth Bedoya Lima (2016) Colombia; Lotfullah Najaizada (2017) Afghanistan; Marcela Turati (2018) Mexico and Jessika Aro (2019) Finland.

In 2008, Louisville attorneys Jon Fleischaker and Kim Greene created the Fleischaker/ Greene Fund for Excellence in First Amendment Issues at Western Kentucky University. The Fund also supports WKU’s Fleischaker/Greene Scholars Program, which gives top students in the School of Media the opportunity to take an advanced special topics class and brings nationally recognized speakers in journalism and First Amendment issues to the WKU campus.
