“This is a well-deserved honor,” Florida Tech Assistant Athletic Director for Athletic Communications Ryan Jones said.

“Jon designed many pieces for our department in his time at Florida Tech. I congratulate him on earning this award, which is a first for our Athletic Communications Office.”

Hower selected a picture of the beach with an approaching storm as the poster’s background photo.

It was a perfect detail considering the closest beach to Florida Tech is just over four miles away.

He also used a subtle picture of a football field and pictures of the team’s Brevard County players taken by Amanda Stratford Photography.
