Congratulations, Kendall

The top 10 winners in college feature writing were announced recently in the 50th annual William Randolph Hearst Foundation’s Journalism Awards Program, in which 110 undergraduate journalism programs at colleges and universities across the nation are eligible to participate. Kendall Wright, one of my former students at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and an Arizona Highways intern, finished fifth in the prestigious competition, which is the college equivalent of the Pulitzer Prize.

The program consists of six monthly writing competitions, three photojournalism competitions, four broadcast news competitions and one multimedia competition. The judges for the writing competition this year were: Jeff Cohen, Executive Vice President and Editor, Houston Chronicle; Peter Bhatia, Executive Editor, The Oregonian (Portland, OR); and Jennifer Sizemore, Vice President/Editor in Chief, MSNBC.com and Executive Producer, NBC News.

Congratulations, Kendall. You’ve made us all very proud.

    Hi Steve,

    I thought it was a very nice article. I am sorry the other gentlemen choose to cancel his subscription – a tremendous loss for him I think. If it is any consolation, you can count me in as a “new subscriber” of sorts…..your article had a very “human” touch and motivated me to now read more of Arizona Highways, and more often! I think Walter Cronkite would have loved it…..I loved him, and wouldn’t miss Brian Williams newscast for anything!

    Best wishes to you for continued success, and many thanks to you and your staff, for a very fine job!

    Sincerely,
    Sharon
