HIGH POINT, N.C., May 9, 2013 – High Point University’s student newspaper, The Campus Chronicle, was recently awarded first place in the 2013 American Scholastic Press Association’s Annual Review and Contest Awards.
Chronicle editor-in-chief Steven Haller notes that the newspaper has undergone major changes throughout the last two years, including format, design and content. Those changes, he says, ultimately helped create a more professional student publication.
“It’s a huge honor that our staff was able to execute the changes and produce a publication that is on par with other collegiate programs in the country,” Haller says.
Pam Haynes, Chronicle adviser, notes the staff worked incredibly hard throughout the year by producing not only remarkable content but incredible layouts to create a polished newspaper.
“I couldn’t be more proud of the staff for their hard work and dedication to The Chronicle,” Haynes says. “Putting together the publication is no easy task – especially when students have heavy academic schedules and other outside activities. The staff truly works as a team to put out a respectable newspaper.”
Haller, who recently graduated, adds, “I’m very excited for the future of The Chronicle; I’m leaving it in good hands.”
