Before she graduated, 91.5 KRCC reporter Dana Cronin ’17 garnered a regional Mark of Excellence Award from the Society of Professional Journalists for her piece, “Creating and Maintaining Trails on Colorado’s Prized 14ers is a Tall Order.”
The Mark of Excellence Awards recognize the best in student journalism, with judging conducted by professional journalists. Entries come from students working toward a degree at a college or university, who do not have full-time professional experience.
Cronin majored in Environmental Science and minors in Journalism and Spanish. Her piece, “Creating and Maintaining Trails on Colorado’s Prized 14ers is a Tall Order,” was entered in the “Radio Feature” category of the regional contest, which consists of Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming.
She began working with the 91.5 KRCC Newsroom in the summer of 2014, after her first year at Colorado College.
