Editor wins first-place award

Maroon News Editor Isaac Wolf was awarded first place in the Roy W. Howard National Reporting Competition for an article he wrote last November on the University's response to suicidal students. Wolf, a third-year in the College, was one of three first-place winners and nine overall to receive the award Monday evening at a ceremony at the University of Indiana.

Wolf's article detailed one student's experience with the Student Counseling and Resource Service following a suicide attempt, and explored how the University's ability to help students is limited by its other interests.

The awards ceremony, which included the presentation of an academic scholarship, was followed by the keynote lecture "Media Ethics is not an Oxymoron," given by Chicago Tribune columnist Clarence Page.
