"Thanks to the Livingston Awards and the wonderful judges. All of you are standing up for this kind of reporting and reminding us when we go out on a limb as journalists there’s going to be a community that has our backs. Thank you for allowing these sources to speak. Thank you for allowing us to begin to change the culture. It was so overdue."”
The Fellowship gave me the opportunity to focus fully on learning ways to ensure that local journalism is sustainable. After the Fellowship, I led a team of people across my company. Our work was nationally recognized by industry organizations and we provided guidance to other newspapers.”
The nurturing environment of the Fellowship was the petri dish that allowed ideas to take form and grow. When the Fellowship ended, I not only picked up where I left off... I took off. I followed the Fellowship with my best work to date; taking a difficult international assignment and turning it into an award-winning investigative feature.”
