Santa Clara Magazine recognized with national award

We knew from the moment we saw Marty Stortz’s essay about Bill Spohn that it was a remarkable piece of writing about a unique man, and it was a privilege to publish it in these pages. So it was doubly gratifying to have “The School of Hope,” published in the Winter 2006 issue, recognized with a national award by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE), which honored Marty and SCM with a silver medal for Best Article of the Year. The awards were presented in July at the CASE national conference in Chicago.

More than 250 articles were submitted nationwide, with the judges surmising that the best of the lot could just as easily have found a home in The American Scholar, The Atlantic Monthly, or Harper’s. Sharing the silver limelight with SCM were articles from publications that include Harvard Magazine, Stanford Magazine, and Yale Alumni Magazine. —SBS
