The magazine staff was tickled to receive much-appreciated kudos for our editorial content and design from national, regional and state professional associations in 2009.

One of my favorite articles, “The Day She Should Have Died,” by freelancer John T. Ward about a young girl in hiding whose anguished cries threatened to expose members of her family to the Nazis, won a gold for Best Article from the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education (CASE), District II.

The same group awarded photographer Bill Cardoni a bronze award for our playful portrait of women rugby players and bestowed upon Art Director Margaret Kiernan an honorable mention for her Winter 2009 issue design.

Earlier in the year, the magazine won a silver award (a tie, I might add, with Columbia University) for our Fall 2008 cover from CASE’s national office in Washington, D.C. And the New Jersey chapter of the Society for Professional Journalists awarded freelance writer Lori Chambers a first-place award for her portrait of “The Fabulous Wendels,” the wealthy and eccentric family whose last surviving member donated some $5 million to Drew at the height of the Depression.—Renée Olson, Editor, Drew Magazine
