As you may have read in the pages of this issue, The Gatepost won four Society of Professional Journalists’ Mark of Excellence Awards at an award ceremony last weekend.
I would like to take a quick moment and say how immensely proud I am of my staff and former co-workers, all of whom contributed to the amazing issues of The Gatepost which contained the four award winning entries at this year’s Society of Professional Journalists’ Mark of Excellence Awards.
To put this into context, we are placed in Region 1, which is the largest, and I’d argue, most competitive region in the country. This region includes Harvard, Yale, Columbia, Penn State and many other fine universities.
My staff and former colleagues are the smartest, funniest and hardest-working group of people I’ve ever had the privilege of knowing.
They all deserve credit for the awards won, as no one person at this paper creates greatness.
I’d be remiss not to thank Nikki Curly, Claire Ostrander of SILD and Dan Costello and the other members of SGA who helped fund our trip to the award ceremony.
Again, much love and thanks to everyone who contributed to The Gatepost in 2015 and to those who have joined us since in 2016.
