Triumph in Toronto
The smiling foursome are University Relations Office staffers Karl Jarosiewicz, Daniel McCabe, Diana Grier Ayton and Eric Smith, who have reason to be proud. At a conference of the Council for Advancement and Support of Education earlier this month in Toronto, their work was recognized in the CASE District One Publications Awards, earning McGill a fistful of honours.
The URO web site earned a silver medal for Karl (web editor), Eric (designer) and Daniel (writer), while your very own McGill Reporter won a gold medal for best university newspaper.
Editor Diana shares credit with associate editor Daniel, typesetter, designer and writer Eric, and Senate correspondent Karl. Plaudits should also go to the man behind the lens here, freelance photographer Owen Egan, and goof-spotter Jane Jackel who does our proofreading.
A CASE honourable mention went to the Development and Alumni Relations web page, which Eric also designed and which is edited by Daniel Chonchol.
Earning second place in the newspaper category was Concordia, and since CASE District One covers pretty big territory the northeastern U.S., Quebec and the Atlantic provinces the judges commented at the awards presentation that they were "pretty impressed with you people in Montreal."
