Index Recognized at Missouri Conference

The Index, Truman’s student-produced newspaper, received several awards last weekend at the Missouri College Media Association’s annual conference.

“Our students do a great job each week and it’s wonderful to see that their efforts are recognized as among the best in the state,” said Index adviser Don Krause, assistant professor of communication.

The Index sports department dominated the sports writing category, with sports writer Brent Foster taking third, assistant sports editor Jack Nicholl earning second place and sports editor Blake Toppmeyer receiving first place.

Zoe Martin, former assistant features editor and current copy editor, received two honorable mentions, one for feature writing and the other for entertainment review. Photo editor Brian O’Shaughnessy received an honorable mention for sports photography.  Joe Barker, a December 2008 graduate and former managing editor, received a second place award for in-depth news reporting.

The paper earned an honorable mention for front page design.
