Chronicle wins awards
The Chronicle took home three N.C. Press Association 2013 News, Editorial and Photojournalism Contest awards last week. The honors were presented Thursday, Feb. 27 during NCPA’s 2014 Winter Institute at the Hill Alumni Center at UNC-Chapel Hill.
The Chronicle – which competes in the category for mid-size community (non-daily) newspapers – won third-place honors in the “Best Community Coverage” and “News Coverage” categories, and T. Kevin Walker, the paper’s managing editor, won second-place in the “Editorials” category.
“Todd (Luck), Layla (Garms) and I give it our all every week to put out a product of value and of interest,” Walker said. “We don’t do it for accolades, but having your hard work acknowledged by your peers certainly feels good and validating.”
