Students Sweep Best College Newspaper Reporter Awards at PCLIs

By Delphian Staff

Two editors and a reporter for The Delphian swept the Best College Newspaper Reporter category at the 2023 Press Club of Long Island (PCLI) awards on June 15. Joanna Reid won first place; Joseph D’Andrea won second; and Lilyen McCarthy won third. They dominated a category with entries from several other college newspapers.

The students won three other awards, including third place for Best College Newspaper. This marks the eleventh consecutive year of placing in this category, as well as multiple other awards for the staff and reporters. In addition, D’Andrea won second place in the Race & Diversity Reporting category for “University’s Bias Response Team Works to Give Students a Voice.” McCarthy won second place in the Investigative Reporting category for “Adelphi Administration Works to Balance Uneven Major Enrollment.”

Liza Burby, who is faculty advisor for The Delphian and a senior adjunct professor in the Communications Department, also won two awards for articles that appeared in Newsday in the Environment and Lifestyles categories.

The PCLI is the local chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists. This event is held annually for Long Island high school and college journalists and professional journalists. It is an opportunity to be recognized by peers in the print, TV, radio and Web fields, and in the case of students, by professionals who support their pursuit of communications jobs.
