What others say

about Jacque White Kochak

“Jacque Kochak is an extraordinary reporter and writer. As soon as she began working for the daily newspaper in Auburn, Ala., she was recognized as the best investigative reporter in this corner of a state, which rarely trusts the press to find and tell hard truths. She is one of only two journalists who the Auburn University faculty respects so highly that it has given her its most prestigious honor, the Academic Freedom Award. Jacque’s unerring instincts and gifts as a storyteller, and her wide experience in translating different worlds into clear and compelling words, make her a world-class writer.”
