Despite the cancellation of the Indiana High School State Press Association’s Fall Convention, the state-wide Harvey Awards were still awarded by IHSPA. Clarksville High School’s two student publications, the Generals’ Delivery and the Legatus, won 19 awards, sweeping the sports writing category.
Leading the Generals, junior Summer Neal won two first place awards, sports writing and public service announcement, second place in editorial, a third place in sports writing and an honorable mention for column writing. Also winning first place awards were senior Kelsey Pease in public service announcement and 2020 graduate Sam Soto-Mendoza for editorial cartooning.
“I could not be more proud of our student journalists. They went above and beyond in covering our school community last year all while learning to navigate life during a pandemic,” adviser Kelly Short said.
