Naugatuck Valley Community College Newspaper, Honored by the Society of Professional Journalists

For the fourth consecutive year, NVCC’s student newspaper, The Tamarack, has been honored by the Connecticut Society of Professional Journalists for excellence in campus reporting. The Tamarack faculty advisor, Associate Professor of English, Steve Parlato, commented that “I’m excited that this year six of our seven awards are in writing categories, and we swept one category, General Column, with first, second, and third place recognition. It’s also significant, I think, that only two Colleges were honored this year.” 
 

The Connecticut Society of Professional Journalists Annual Winners List featured seven awards to the students of NVCC. For Editorial/Op-ed, The Tamarack writers took second and third place awards for their editorials “Do we say sorry?” by Chelsea Clow and “Nevertheless she persisted” by Trevor Lilly. The third-place award for Features went to “Injustice runs deep” by Nicole Hayes.

In the General Column/Commentary category, The Tamarack swept away all three awards. First place- went to “Is It warm in here?” by Alyssa Katz, second place to “Enough!” by Jessica Ney and third place to “That's what she said: Together we rise” by Jessica Ney. In the Page 1 Layout category, The Tamarack took first place for its September front page, “Another heated summer/framing a nation” by Creative Director, Janice Bielawa. 

In congratulating the student writers, NVCC President Daisy Cocco De Filippis wrote to the entire campus, “Just as I think the week could not get any better, I am moved, not really surprised, by the news that our wonderful student reporters and editors of The Tamarack have been recognized in a very significant way by receiving seven awards from the Connecticut Society of Professional Journalists!  Count them, not one but seven, we continue to do things in a big way here. I praise their talent, resilience and perseverance as I celebrate with our NVCC community this well-deserved and important recognition.”
