SBCC Channels Wins Four National Awards

Student newspaper earns two National Pacemaker Awards, college journalism's top honors

Noozhawk’s note: The SBCC Channels earned three National Pacemaker Awards previously. An earlier version of this article was incorrect and the story has been updated below.

SBCC’s student newspaper, The Channels, has earned two National Pacemaker Awards from the Associated Collegiate Press. The Pacemakers are college journalism’s most prestigious honors.

“I’m deeply proud of The Channels and all of the hard work that went in to creating this fantastic publication,” said Kenny Lindberg, former editor-in-chief and a former Noozhawk intern.

During the recent National College Media Convention in Austin, Texas, The Channels learned it had earned general excellence Pacemakers in the categories of Two-Year College Newspaper and Two-Year Online Newspaper.

The paper also won a first-place Best in Show award for its print publication. Photo editor James Sinclair earned a second-place award for his spot-news photograph from the Jesusita Fire. The panoramic view surveyed the wildfire’s destruction from the top of Tunnel Road.

The Channels previously earned three National Pacemaker Awards under the leadership of the late Ray Canton, who served as journalism mentor and adviser to the program from 1965 to 1987. Canton was twice named Community College Journalism Teacher of the Year by the California Newspaper Publishers Association.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
