Student Newspaper el Don Wins Multiple Honors


Santa Ana, CA, November 27, 2008 --(PR.com)-- The award-winning student newspaper el Don, published by the Journalism Dept. at Santa Ana College (SAC), was inducted into the Associated Collegiate Press (ACP) Hall of Fame at the National College Media Convention held Oct. 29-Nov. 2 in Kansas City, MO.

According to Journalism Chair Charles Little, “el Don qualified for the Hall of Fame because it has won 14 national Pacemaker awards in 17 years in ACP competitions.”

Former el Don student editor Martin Syjuco, now a student at Chapman University, also won “Reporter of the Year,” an award based on a reporter’s three best single news or feature stories published in a college newspaper during the competition year.

The California Newspaper Publishers Association also named el Don as its First Place General Excellence Winner in the Two-Year College category at its annual Better Newspapers Contest in November.

“Our journalism program is based on the mantra ‘hard work pays off,’ and student staff writers and editors spend summers, weekends and holidays pursuing excellence in stories they deem important,” Little said. “They compete for awards at the highest levels nationally with the top journalism programs in America, and they are considered the best at what they do.”
