Herald wins Pacemaker

The College Heights Herald won a national Pacemaker Award last week at the National College Media Convention in Orlando, Fla.

It’s the student newspaper’s ninth Pacemaker since 1981, the last coming in 2000.

Louisville seniors Ryan Clark and Brian Moore served as editor for the fall 2001 and spring 2002 semesters, respectively.

The Pacemaker competition, considered the Pulitzer Prize of college journalism, is co-sponsored by the Associated Collegiate Press and the Newspaper Association of America Foundation.

Three Western students also took home individual awards.

Louisville junior Mai Hoang won first place for business and economic reporting. Lyndsay Sutton, a May graduate, won second place in the Los Angeles Times sports story of the year competition.

Taylor Loyal, also a May graduate, placed third for the Los Angeles Times diversity story of the year.
