Cincinnati SPJ named chapter of the year at annual Excellence in Journalism conference


The Greater Cincinnati Pro Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists was recently named as "Small Chapter of the Year" for the second year in a row by the Society of Professional Journalists.

The chapter has been recognized with this same honor three out of the past four years.

SPJ President Lynn Walsh announced the honor during the opening business meeting at the annual Excellence in Journalism conference in Anaheim on September 7. The chapter was also recognized with a "Circle of Excellence" award for its campus relations.

Executive officers from the chapter - President Tom McKee, Treasurer Hagit Limor and Secretary Ginny McCabe were in attendance to accept the honor. Vice President Jenny Wohlfarth was at home in Cincinnati recovering from surgery. However, Cincinnati SPJ's executive team called her from the meeting to share the good news.

Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma

Here are a few ways to help:
Here are ways you can help people impacted by Hurricane Irma. Here are some specific organizations that are leading relief efforts in Miami-Dade County, the Florida Keys and Southwest Florida.

#CommCares
The Valenti School of Communication at the University of Houston has created an emergency scholarship fund for their communication students. Almost all of the 2,000 students have to work part-time to support their education, now much more difficult in dealing with Hurricane Harvey aftermath. 100 percent of all donations will be used for students in need.  You can donate here.
