On Saturday, April 21, 2018, The Arapahoe Pinnacle took home the Best Independent Online Student Publication Award from the Society of Professional Journalists at the group’s Region 9 Conference at the Auraria Campus in Denver. The conference, which housed students and professionals from Utah, New Mexico, Wyoming and Colorado, spanned from Friday afternoon until Saturday evening.

Many current and former Pinnacle staff members were in attendance and were grateful to be honored at the Mark of Excellence Awards on Saturday. Vicki Johnson was a finalist in the Online Opinion and Commentary category; Scott Bright and Bryden Smith were both finalists in Online Feature Reporting.

On Friday night, Serena Montoya, Emily Langenberg and Smith received scholarships from SPJ at the Denver Press Club.

Jamey Trotter, the Pinnacle’s faculty adviser, was awarded Journalism Educator of the Year by SPJ’s Colorado Chapter, a prestigious honor that couldn’t be more well-deserved. Trotter, an English and journalism professor at ACC, coordinates the only program in Colorado that offers an associate’s degree in journalism.

Also on Saturday, Langenberg discussed reporting on sexual harassment alongside journalists Bente Birkland, Michael de Yonna and Marianne Goodland. Langenberg was chosen as a panelist in regards to her article about sexual assault titled “‘No’: An Examination of the #MeToo Movement.”

Basically, it was a big weekend for the Pinnacle. We’d like to thank our readers for their continued support and extend our gratitude towards ACC, whom we wouldn’t be here without.
