  •  Awardified: SCM again the most bemedalled university mag in the West

    Monday, Mar. 7, 2011

    A wise man once said: He who tooteth not his own horn remains in a state of untootedness.
    With that as our cue, we’re happy to share some news from the regional awards for the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE): Santa Clara Magazine is once again the most lauded mag in the West. At an awards ceremony hosted in Los Angeles on March 4 by CASE’s Region VII, SCM was honored with seven medals, including top honors for staff writing and a silver medal for overall excellence.
    At the ceremony, the 2009 SCU President’s Report, “Keeping Our Commitment to Students,” was also honored with a bronze medal for excellence. The CASE District VII competition includes more than 100 colleges and universities from Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada, and Utah.
    Gold for staff writing
    Five articles from 2009–10 earned SCM a gold for staff writing—with articles running the gamut from a look at “Bad Journalism 101” by Mansi Bhatia to a profile of Barry O’Brien ’79, an executive producer for CSI: Miami and co-creator of Hannah Montana.
    Triple silver
    SCM earned a silver in the category College and University General Interest Magazine with a circulation of over 75,000.
    Another silver for Excellence in Editorial Design honored the photo essay on Haiti by Michael Larremore ’08, “Courage in the Face.” Larremore went to Haiti following the devastating earthquake in January 2010 as part of a medical relief mission. His photos capture resilience and strength in the face of disaster.
    The cover illustration by Keith Negley for our Winter 2009 issue — “Imagine. Go. Do.” — earned a silver for cover design. Last fall, the University and College Design Association selected Negley’s cover illustration for a national award for excellence as well.
    And triple bronze
    For overall design SCM landed one bronze medal.
    A second bronze honored the Spring 2010 issue, Home: a house, a land, an idea, in the category special issues, for its many-faceted exploration of home — from the cover story on the SCU Solar Decathlon team to a profile of Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano ’79, with an essay by Kristina Chiapella ’10 on how some Native Americans in the Bay Area define (and try to reclaim) home in the 21st century.
    Lastest but certainly not leastest: Photographer Bud Glick’s portrait of Pat Mangan ’84 for the article “Hold the line” was awarded a bronze in the photography category. Mangan, athletic director and basketball coach at Frederick Douglas Academy in Harlem, has built a stellar high school hoops program by putting emphasis on family first, school second, then basketball.
