La Verne Magazine is among best of best

The La Verne Magazine has received a 2022-23 Silver Crown award for hybrid magazines from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association. This win puts the Magazine among the top eight college magazines in the nation for the 2022-23 academic year. 

“This award is a mark of distinction for the whole department,” said George Keeler, La Verne Magazine advisor and program chair of journalism and public relations. “It says that we’re the best of the best. Even though we don’t chase these awards, it’s nice when you do enter, and say, ‘hey, look where we are.’ It’s a point of excellence.”

The La Verne Magazine is a city magazine published once a semester with articles and photography by students. 

“This is a reflection of how good my students are and can be and how they stand,”  Keeler said “They should look at this and say, ‘This is how I match up with the students at other colleges and universities. I work on one of the best magazines in the country.’ So it should be a real promotion device for them to get a job.” 

The Columbia Scholastic Press Association is an international student press organization uniting student jour­nalists and faculty at colleges through educational conferences, idea exchanges and award programs. Owned and operated by Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, the Association founded in 1925 is one of the oldest, largest, and most prestigious student journalism associations.
