The Pennsylvania Newspaper Association has awarded staff members of Loquitur Media, Cabrini's student-run news media, three Keystone Press Awards.
- Emily Rose Rowan ('17) won first place for Best Feature Photo for photos in a story about domestic abuse written by Caitlyn Huebner, "The life and struggles of a domestic abuse survivor."
- Angelina Marie Miller ('19) won second place for General News for her story, "Racial slur found."
- Molly P. Seaman ('18) received honorable mention for Feature Story for her story about a visit to Auschwitz, "The trees have eyes."
The Student Keystone Press Awards contest recognizes high school and college journalism that provides relevance, integrity, and initiative in serving readers.
"These Cabrini Communication majors have produced exceptional work on stories of significance," said Jerry Zurek, PhD, Chair and Professor of Communication and advisor for the Loquitur. "These stories about domestic abuse, genocide, and racial conflict are the type of work established journalists aspire to do, and for collegiate journalists to have their work recognized as the best in Pennsylvania by news professionals is a tribute to these students' dedication."
Contest submission is open to any public, private, or parochial Pennsylvania high school, college, or university student who has material published in a school newspaper. Loquitur Media falls under the Division II category for four-year colleges with enrollment under 10,000 students. All winners will be honored at the America East Media Business & Technology Conference on Wednesday, March 14, 2018, in Hershey, Pa.
