The Delphian has just won second place in the Best College Newspaper category from the Press Club of Long Island (PCLI), a local chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists. This marks the ninth consecutive year of placing in this category. In addition, staff writer Christopher Alvarez won the Disability Journalism Scholarship for the articles he wrote for the paper.
Alvarez said of this honor: ""This scholarship means a lot to both my family and me. Writing was never a good talent of mine in my early education days but The Delphian newspaper at Adelphi helped me gain confidence and find myself in what I truly love. I’m not the best writer but I can now say, I am a writer and a winner of a great scholarship, all because of my Delphian family."
Liza Burby, who is faculty advisor for The Delphian and a senior adjunct professor in the Communications Department, won second place in the Education category for her Adelphi University magazine article, “Community Improvement by Design.” She also won third place for an article in Newsday in the Food & Beverage category, “Accounting for Taste.”
Usually the awards are announced at a ceremony in June, but because of the pandemic, winners were informed via email on July 20. To learn more about the awards, visit www.pcli.org.
