Sergio and Marlen have proven that two editors-in-chief are better than one! They have ensured that Journalism 2014 got started off on the right foot and are always trying to improve the class. For their hard work, I think it is only fair that they both are honored with the Golden Press Hat. Congrats to you both!

I chose Yolanda as the Journalist of the week because she is a hardworking writer. She publishes stories on the due date, maybe even before. She never slacks off her work and keeps her mind in the stories that she must publish. She has a story that she is interested in and she is determined to write and publish it. She never goofs around. Instead she completes the objective of the day.

I chose Christopher as the Journalists of the week because he edits writers work harshly even if he is your friend. He is always independent when it comes to writing stories and properly writing it with full facts about what his story is about. Although he does not look like he does his work he is always there for you no matter what and is helpful in helping you with your story
