Charlotte, N.C.:  The ACC Digital Network (@theACCDN) named Shantel Jordan, a Mass Communications major with a minor in Journalism, and Jacob Dennis, a Management major with a minor in Journalism, as winners of its most recent Guest Reporter Search campaign. Jordan and Dennis will serve as official members of the ACCDN team in Greensboro, working alongside Jeff Fischel and Courtney Cox as well as analysts Jason Capel and Drew Barry.  Both winners, who are passionate ACC and college sports fans, are set to graduate in Spring 2016.  This is the 2nd Guest Reporter Search for the ACCDN.

"I'm so thankful for the opportunity to join the ACC Digital Network at the ACC Basketball Tournament this week. It's an honor to learn from some of the best in the business. I'm interested to see the production from start to finish at a tournament of this caliber," said Shantel Jordan.

There was a strong group of candidates and I'm very grateful to have been chosen."

"I would like to thank the ACC Digital Network for providing me with the opportunity to join their on-site team for the Men's Basketball Tournament," said Jacob Dennis who entered the campaign for a second time after entering the first ACCDN search this past fall.
