The Highlander newsmagazine named Pacemaker finalist


Posted on September 15, 2015 by

I’m pleased to share with you that McLean’s newsmagazine, The Highlander, is one of just 16 newsmagazines nationwide to be announced as a Pacemaker finalist! The staff of The Highlander is also the only news staff in the state of Virginia (newspaper OR newsmagazine) to make the finalist list.

Since 1927, the National Scholastic Press Association’s Pacemaker competition has been considered by many to be student journalism’s highest honor. In November, adviser Lindsay Benedict and her staff will find out at the National Scholastic Press Association conference in Orlando if they have won a Pacemaker – but just making it on the finalist list is a tremendous accomplishment!
