Wingspan takes first place 25 years in a row

For the 25th consecutive year, Laramie County Community College’s student newspaper, Wingspan, has taken first place with special merit in the American Scholastic Press Association national competition.

This highest placing in the competition was in the category of community colleges with more than 2,500 enrollment for calendar year 2014.

In addition, Wingspan was the only four- or two-year college-level institution to be honored with the nationwide “outstanding service to the community.” The award went to the staff’s special section in April 2014 on the changes such as general education requirements, individual course redesign and scholarship reallocations being made at the college to increase degree/certificate completion as part of the “Complete College America” initiative.

Editors during the 2014 competition year for the spring semester were Brooke A. Rogers and Daniel Martinez. Editors for the fall semester were Erica Klimt and Samantha Weaver.

Faculty advisers are Rosalind Schliske and J.L. O’Brien.
