Jaguar News was awarded the National Scholastic Press Association Pacemaker for Broadcast News at a national conference, November 14. The students, many of whom graduated last May, and instructor Heather Jancoski could not attend the event in Orlando, but she received a tweet with the news and texted those students who were part of the winning entry.  

“I am so happy that these students are starting to get recognized for all of their hard work in and outside of school,” Jancoski said. 

Each year, the National Scholastic Press Association presents scholastic journalism’s preeminent award, the Pacemaker. There is a category for each type of publication – online, newspaper, yearbook, magazine and broadcast. Entries are judged by teams of professionals based on the following criteria: coverage and content, quality of writing and reporting, leadership, design, photography and graphics.
