The Phoenix (formerly known as The Knight Times), Marian University’s student-run newspaper, has won an Indiana Collegiate Press Association (ICPA) Award for design. Editor Katie McConnell, along with student Sydney Shewmaker, former student Abby Crawford, and Jennifer Camerer ’12, will be honored at the ICPA Convention in Bloomington, Indiana on Saturday, April 13.
"These students work hard at what they do. They’ve put in many hours to improve the paper and learn new things about journalism and design,” said Sarah Layden, student newspaper advisor and adjunct faculty member in the School of Liberal Arts.
McConnell was honored to receive the award.
“The award means a lot to me, as well as the entire staff. Even though we are a small newspaper, we put a lot of time and effort into every single issue. This award shows that someone is noticing,” said McConnell.
