North Wind honored to receive award

NW Staff

The North Wind was honored last week with Organization of the Year – university funded – at the Leadership Recognition Banquet on Thursday, April 15. We were up against some of the most prominent organizations on campus, including Radio X and ASNMU. We really appreciate recognition of the efforts that we have made in order to provide the most important information to the students.

Like many of the organizations we were up against in the competition, we have spent much of our time over the past year working toward a certain goal. We have made a significant effort to provide the Northern community with the kind of information that they deserve to know. There have been many late production nights writing, laying out pages and editing. We have conducted numerous interviews, asked  many questions and written and edited countless articles. We have worked hard to produce the best quality product for the students of this university, trying our best to find out what students need to know and then going out and getting the facts for them. It is an honor to be awarded for these efforts by the university, and we can’t thank it enough for the recognition.

Yet there is much more work ahead of our staff for next semester. There are many more stories to break, events to cover and situations to make sure students understand. We will strive to be the best newspaper we can be because we understand the importance of a student newspaper for its constituency.

Next year, we will have several new people on staff and we are certain they will help this paper become an even better organization to produce quality product for the students of our university. They will help strengthen our paper by providing a new perspective on the day to day workings of the paper and the issues we face every week as an organization.

This year, students voted for our referendum, which will help us in our goal. We’d like to thank them as well for their votes and we will make sure that money will not go to waste.

It is an honor to cover the happenings of this university, to be an important part of its function, and we hope to continue to report on the events and situations of this university in the best and most successful way possible.
