Honors and Awards

  • Digital Reporter 2.0 
    • November 2011
    • American Consolidated Media

    I was chosen in the fall of 2011 by American Consolidated Media to be among 21 digital reporters in the field from all around the country, armed with iPad2 workstations. When I was chosen to be part of this group, I had been working for the company for a total of four months. The goal was for me to create more unique digital content for The Daily Press’s website, as well as provide timely reports from the field to post as breaking news bulletins online and to include in the printed paper. As part of this project, my work has been featured on ACM’s website as an example of excellence.
