• Baylor Lariat named best student paper in Texas

    The Baylor LariatAs a student, I spent one semester writing for The Baylor Lariat. I certainly didn’t write anything worthy of an award — but this year’s Lariat students did, and they’ve been rewarded for it.

    The Lariat was named the best student newspaper in Texas by the Houston Press Club and was ranked second in the state by the Associated Press Managing Editors Association of Texas. Lariat writers Claire St. Amant and Melissa Limmer were also national finalists in the Society of Professional Journalists’ 2007 Mark of Excellence Awards, placing in the top three in the country for “Breaking News Reporting.”

    Sic ’em, Lariat staffers!
