Flagler College Gargoyle students have won two national awards in the Society of Professional Journalists’ Mark of Excellence competition.
Sarah Williamson, ’13, took first place in the General News Photography category for her work on “Homeless, under 30 and invisible.” Williamson is a former Gargoyle editor and graduated with a B.A. in Communication in December.
“The Gargoyle staff has done some incredible work this year,” said Brian Thompson, adviser to The Gargoyle, Flagler’s online-only, student-run newspaper. “I think it really speaks to the quality of students we have in our Communication department.”
Flagler students recently won 15 awards, including five first place finishes, in the Society of Professional Journalists' 2013 Mark of Excellence Awards for Region 3, which includes Alabama, Florida, Georgia and South Carolina. All first place winners then went on to compete nationally.
