Error leads to more recognition for Criterion assistant editor

Because of an error by the Catholic Press Association (CPA), several awards were inadvertently not included in its original list of 2019 CPA winners.

Assistant editor John Shaughnessy also received a second-place award in the “Best Reporting on Catholic Education” category for his story “Teachers overcome fear and challenges on climb of Africa’s highest mountain.” The article focused on Dee Anne and Paul Sinclair, teachers at Father Thomas Scecina Memorial High School in Indianapolis, who climbed up Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania in eastern Africa during the summer of 2018.

“Well-written story about teachers who are an inspiration to their students,” judges wrote. “Filled with color and details to help the reader immerse themselves in the teachers’ journey. Nicely done.” †
