Hagerstown student on award-winning college paper

July 27, 2009

ST. MARY'S CITY, Md. -- Rowan Copley of Hagerstown is on the staff of the student newspaper at St. Mary's College of Maryland, which won first place with special merit in the American Scholastic Press Association's annual newspaper competition.

Copley has been the arts and entertainment editor of The Point News, the school newspaper.

This is the third consecutive year the student newspaper has received high honors.

"I'm immensely proud of Rowan and the entire Point News staff for their hard work this year," said Justin Perry, Editor in Chief of the publication. "Without our editors, there would be no newspaper and there would absolutely be no award. This year at The Point News was a stressful one at times, but I'm always proud when the finished product hits the newsstands and I'm incredibly happy that a national organization such as the ASPA recognized our staff's talent and hard work."

In 2007 and 2008, The Point News won first place in the competition. Approximately 2,000 scholastic yearbooks, magazines and newspapers are judged each year.
