The Carolina Alumni Review has earned a Silver Award in the most recent Best Articles of the Year category of the Council for Advancement and Support of Education’s national awards program.
Beth McNichol ’95 wrote the winning entry, “The Client She’ll Never Give Up On,” a profile of Christine Mumma ’85 and her work with the North Carolina Center on Actual Innocence, founded to help get wrongfully convicted people declared innocent. Mumma also earned her law degree from UNC in 1998.
Seventy-four entries were judged, and two Gold, three Silver and two Bronze awards were given. The awards were announced in late June. “The Client She’ll Never Give Up On” appeared in the September/October 2010 issue of the Review.
McNichol is a former associate editor of the Review and now is a freelance writer.
The GAA’s publications have been recognized with national or Southeast district CASE awards each year since 1996.
