The Shorthorn wins fourth consecutive ACP Pacemaker award

UTA’s Student Publication, The Shorthorn, received its fourth consecutive Associated Collegiate Press Pacemaker award – commonly called the Pulitzer Prize of collegiate media. The Pacemaker recognizes excellence in reporting, writing, photography, graphics and design. Student journalists at The Shorthorn use all of these elements to produce a daily digital newsletter and weekly print edition. A few students were also recognized individually, including multimedia editor Duy Vu who won first place spot news photo among three other awards for excellence in photojournalism. Editor-in-Chief Narda Perez said The Shorthorn staff is proud to be recognized for all the hard work they put in everyday, but at the end of the day their work is to serve the community, not to win awards.
