Marshall Washington, Ph.D., campus vice president of the HACC-Lancaster Campus. “The Live Wire student newspaper is a great student publication providing opportunities for talented individuals to contribute.”
He added, “The student newspaper is a medium that students can use to explore journalism, cartooning, layout and design, and other avenues of putting together a publication.”
“Please join me in congratulating the winners and all the students who have participated in the production of Live Wire,” said Patricia Hanahoe-Dosch, associate professor of English and newspaper adviser. “They all perform a unique and important service for our campus and give an enormous amount of hard work, dedication and creativity to each issue. These specific students are brilliant, but the newspaper is a team effort, and each award winner here was aided in his and her success by the support, brilliance, and hard work of the other staff members, too.”
