Olivet College Echo earns Better Newspaper honors
Oct 06, 2011

The Echo, Olivet College’s student newspaper, recently earned two new awards to add to its name in 2011.

The publication won second place honors for news reporting and third place honors for editorial writing in its Division III category at the 2011 College Better Newspaper Awards, coordinated by the Michigan Press Association.

Christine Moulton, a 2011 Olivet graduate, earned the reporting honor for her story about a local youth assaulting college students. “The reporting is enough to make a community want to change. Excellent coverage,” wrote the judges. Moulton, of Royal Oak, is now a producer at WCAR Radio in Detroit.

Sarah Phillips, a junior from Hastings, earned the editorial honor for her piece, “Minutes to Remember,” written in the shadow of Japan’s earthquake. “Timely and makes a good point,” wrote judges. Phillips, who was Echo editor last semester, is layout designer this semester.

The Olivet College Echo has been a student voice since 1888, and regularly enters and earns honors in the annual newspaper contest. The Echo is a member of the Michigan Collegiate Press Association, as well as the Associated Collegiate Press and the Society of Professional Journalists. The Echo has won 18 awards in the past five years from the MPA, not including this year’s honors.
