Olivet College’s student newspaper earns honors
Oct 22, 2007

The Olivet College student newspaper, The Echo, placed in four categories for Division III schools in the Michigan Press Association’s College Newspaper Contest.

Among the students honored were Katelyn Harmon, a sophomore from Augusta, who was the top finisher for spot color display ads with a Tim’s Pizza advertisement she created. Maggie Gustafson, a sophomore from Sparta, placed second in sports photos for her picture of basketball player Audrey Graham. Brandon Walters, a senior from Olivet, received honorable mention for his feature story on Shipherd Hall’s faith-based wing. The Echo was also named honorable mention for news page design. Prominent layout staff include Harmon and Igor Rasula, a junior from Belgrade, Serbia.

The contest was open to student newspaper members of the Michigan Press Association (MPA), and was cosponsored by the Michigan Collegiate Press Association, an association composed of advisers to the MPA student newspaper members. The newspapers competed in one of three divisions including: Division I (papers publishing more than weekly); Division II (papers publishing weekly); and Division III (two-year college publications or schools publishing less than weekly). Entries included editorial content, design, photos, general excellence, advertising sections and online editions.
