skyline shines students win awardAt this semester’s Journalism Association of Community Colleges State Convention, Skyline College brought home several awards. The convention, held in Burbank, brings more than 450 student journalists together from all over California to take workshops from professionals in the field, network with other journalists and compete in contests.

First, staffer Dave Newlands and former editor in chief Michelle Kelly took second place for mail-in magazine cover for the very first issue of Viewpoint, the program’s new magazine. (And keep an eye out for the second issue of Viewpoint which just hit the stands this week!) Veteran staffer and production editor Jordan Sweidan earned third place in on-the-spot feature photography. And rookie staff photographer Kevin Perez picked up an honorable mention for his on-the-spot sports photo. Current editor in chief Michelle Brignoli took home a JACC scholarship. Fifteen students from The Skyline View staff and journalism department courses attended the three-day long annual event.
