The Knox Student has been named a finalist for the 2014 Associated Collegiate Press Newspaper Pacemaker award, which recognizes overall excellence among collegiate newspapers around the country. Judges select Pacemakers based on the following criteria: coverage and content, quality of writing and reporting, leadership on the opinion page, evidence of in-depth reporting, design, photography, art and graphics. Winners of the award will be announced at the National College Media Convention in Philadelphia on Saturday, Nov. 1.
TKS is being judged in the four-year, non-daily category for five issues published during the 2013-2014 academic year. Other Pacemaker finalists this year include student newspapers from UCLA, Syracuse University, Temple University, George Washington University, and the College of William and Mary.
Congratulations to last year’s staff, led by former editor-in-chief, Charlie Megenity, and advisor, Tom Martin.
