I am now officially a finalist for a Gruner Award
My series “Obesity in Sanger: A Catastrophe of Calories,” for The Sanger Herald, is a finalist for the George F. Gruner Awards for Meritorious Public Service in journalism in the Central San Joaquin Valley.
The awards honor Mr. Gruner, a former editor of the Fresno Bee, and rank among the top journalism honors in the state.
The McClatchy Company established the Gruner awards in 1989. They are administered by the Department of Mass Communication and Journalism at Fresno State and co-host the awards banquet with The Fresno Bee.
I will find out May 1 how the project fared.
