Yet again, the Brookhaven Courier staff attended the annual Texas Community College Journalism Association Convention on Oct. 4 and—not surprisingly—came home with several awards in hand.
The 2013 convention, hosted by Texas Woman’s University in Denton, welcomed more than 15 schools to present their journalism works in categories such as advertising, feature writing, sports news and website. The colleges participate in “canned” contests as well as live competitions.
The Courier staff received 11 awards across the board.
