Students on the staff of Wando High School’s Tribal Tribune school newspaper have earned top honors in the Media Women of Scout Carolina high school communications contest with 11 earning a place in the national competition, and three earning awards from the National Federation of Press Women.

Wando students earning first place awards at the S.C. level of completion were: Lucie Wall (Editorial), Elizabeth Levi (Opinion), Christy Cherry (News), Amanda Sharpley (Feature), Alexandra Antley (Sports), Jodi Lee (Feature Photo), Laurel McKay (Sports Photo), Katherine Frain (Review), Ian Hurlock (Graphics), Davis Haithcock (Single-Page Layout), Emily Lor (Double Truck Layout).

Lucie Wall earned a second place award in the national competition with Lor and Haithcock each receiving honorable mention recognition. Eleven of the 16 statewide winners moving on to compete at the national level came from Wando’s Tribal Tribune staff, led by adviser Tamela Watkins.

“Wando students have consistently produced award winning work in the many years they have participated in this contest and have again earned the MWSC “Sweeps” award as a staff for their efforts. We’re very proud that these students have helped to bring national attention to the quality of work that young S.C. journalists are producing,” said MWSC president and high school communications director, Kim Atchley.
