    “We are very proud of the achievement of our students, said PCCD Chancellor Jowel C. Laguerre. “I want to thank the NATAS for its recognition of our deserving students.”
    Other winners this year include students from Stanford and Sacramento State. 
    NATAS trustee Steve Shlisky — also a producer at KTVU Channel 2 and Media Communications professor at Laney College — noted that “the quality and aesthetics of the students’ submissions is closer and closer each year to the work of professional journalists. That’s a real tribute to the excellent media education going on at our local colleges.”

Some articles may also suffer from formatting issues. Future archival efforts may fix these issues.
