Press receives national award

Thursday, October 25, 2012 by The Press in Local News

The Northampton Press placed first in the "publications regularly edited by entrant" category in the 2012 National Federation of Press Women communications contest.

"A publisher of mine once told me, 'I'd rather be a strong weekly than a weak daily,'" wrote one of the contest judges. "The Northampton Press is a strong weekly with solid editing, writing, photography and design content going on with a clear sense of purpose. It is a newspaper that seeks to keep pushing on its coverage and for its community. Nice! Keep up the good work."

Perhaps it was due to the recent publicity concerning the Mary Immaculate Center property being offered for sale by the Philadelphia Archdiocese. Or maybe it was just the spectacular weather.

Either way, 21 participants came out for a hike through the 460 acres, located between Cherryville and Indian Trail roads, Sept. 15.
