Heemstra honored for his work on the VISIONS Across America project

6 Oct


We all know Jim Heemstra’s work on the VISIONS Across America project was AMAZING. On Friday, Oct. 10 he’ll be honored with the 2014 Impact Award during the ISU Homecoming Honors & Awards ceremony. The Impact Award honors individuals who have brought broad recognition to the university during the previous year (Cyclone basketball standout Melvin Ejim is the other 2014 recipient).

Jim is being honored for his work with the VISIONS Across America magazine and museum exhibition this past year. But I like to think of this as a lifetime achievement award for the thousands of incredible images Jim has made of the ISU campus and for VISIONS magazine. He’s a legend, and although he’s not so keen on winning awards, he is definitely deserving.

Here’s a link to all the awards being given on Friday to many other deserving Iowa State alumni and friends. Congrats to all.

    Wonderful. So well deserved. He is a visual magician with his camera and talent for capturing just the right image with it. Congratulations Jim.
