The-Guardsman-CCSF-JACC-2014-001

 

With approximately 545 students in attendance representing 43 community colleges, City College journalism students received 30 awards at the Journalism Association of Community Colleges state convention held at the Burbank Marriott Hotel on April 3-5.

The Guardsman and Etc. Magazine swept top honors with General Excellence for each publication, including General Excellence for The Guardsman Online.

The awards ceremony was capped with The Guardsman earning the top prize of the night, the Pacesetter, that recognizes the best of the best at the convention. The Pacesetter award was given to the top four schools based on their performance in mail-in and on-the-spot competitions.

The newspaper’s Faculty Adviser Juan Gonzales attended the conference along with 15 journalism students.

Madeline Collins, editor-in chief of The Guardsman, along with Amy Ashcroft and Jordyn Occhipinti,

co-editors of Etc. Magazine, were recognized for their special work on the two publications.

Guardsman photographer Khaled Sayed took home a JACC scholarship to continue his education at City College.

“This was a tremendous accomplishment by our students,” Gonzales said. “Our students truly did the

college proud. We should all bask in their success. I am so proud of them.”
