ALUMNI NEWS: Jennifer Gish wins national award

Jennifer Gish's ('09, BA in English, journalism emphasis) headline, "Facebook a friend again," was part of The Orange County Register staff entry that won the American Copy Editors Society's 2011 headline contest.

They earned first place in their division: newspapers with circulations between 160,001 and 240,000.

The judges said: "This choice wasn’t close for any of us, really. Orange County’s staff said a lot in a few words, and their entry was consistent: Each hed popped. We liked that they submitted heds across several sections of the paper, showing that they don’t rely on one or two headline stars."

Congratulations Jennifer!
