Continuing its tradition of excellence, Gannon University’s student-driven newspaper The Gannon Knight has earned several awards from the American Scholastic Press Association (ASPA). 

ASPA is a nationwide contest for educational publications ranging from magazines to newspapers, to yearbooks, focused on highlighting the pieces produced and the students who create them. 

The Gannon Knight was named the "Most Outstanding University Digital Newspaper" for 2021-22, and also received a first-place award in the category of Colleges/Universities with an enrollment of 2,500 and above.

Congratulations to the student team on The Gannon Knight’s staff, the Gannon community is proud and grateful to you for your time and journalistic integrity. 

In 2021-22, The Knight was led by Editor-in-Chief Madeline Bruce, who in her final column reflected on the work of the academic year past. 

“I couldn’t think of a better group of students to work with,” writes Bruce. “Every week, they faced hurdles that would cause many others to give up. However, they pushed through and turned around high-quality content. They even made it look easy.

During our short 24 issues together, they showed me what innovation, hard work, creativity and resilience look like. I will carry their lessons with me in everything I do post-graduation.

Of course, I can’t write my last column without acknowledging Frank Garland, The Knight’s stalwart faculty adviser for the last 16 years.”
