Tribune honored with state awards

COLUMBUS — The Tribune was recognized Sunday by the Ohio Associated Press Media Editors, bringing home four honors at the annual awards banquet.

Photographer Jessica St. James placed third in the best feature photo category, as well as third for best photographer.

The Tribune’s creative director, Kandi Thompson, received third for best graphics artist.

Michelle Goodman, managing editor, placed first for best headline writer.

“We are honored to be recognized by our peers and the Associated Press Media Editors for the hard work our staff does to be Lawrence County’s hometown newspaper,” Josh Morrison, Tribune general manager, said. “These honors reflect that hard work, but our main objective is to always be a valuable source of information and advertising to the communities we serve. While these awards are judged on news, photography and composing, several of these honors reflect the dedication and hard work of the entire staff. While the awards may hang in The Tribune office, we feel these are community awards because it is the readers who allow us to tell their stories.”
