The Associated Collegiate Press named two students at North Carolina State University as finalists in that organization’s individual awards.

ACP named Clark Leonard, a May 2008 graduate and then sports editor of the Technician, as a finalist for sports story and Susannah Brinkley as a finalist for news page/spread design. Brinkley is a sophomore in graphic design, co-design editor of the Technician and a Technician grant recipient.

This marks the first time in recent history that a student from North Carolina State University has been named a finalist for a national writing award. Leonard recently accepted a job in Georgia as a sports reporter. The story, “1973 a season of ‘forgotten’ success: Team went 27-0, but was ineligible to compete in the NCAA Tournament because of violations” appeared in the Nov. 15 special edition of the Technician.

Winners will be announced for the first time at the National College Media Convention Oct. 29-Nov. 2 in Kansas City.
