CAR Scholarship Winners

The Rio Grande Chapter is excited to announce that our CAR scholarship winners this year are Diana Alba-Soular of the Las Cruces Sun News and Dan McKay of the Albuquerque Journal

In a continued effort to improve the state of journalism in New Mexico and West Texas—and to serve our members—the Rio Grande Chapter of SPJ is sending the two journalists to attend the IRE CAR bootcamp in Columbia, Missouri this summer.

We had great applicants, but McKay and Alba-Soular not only had strong support from their supervisors/colleagues, they provided the application committee with strong ideas about how they’ll improve not only their own work, but that of their colleagues and other fellow journalists in the area.

We’re proud of the great work they do–and look forward to hearing about what they learn this summer.

Please join us in congratulating Dan and Diana on Twitter: @mckaydan and @AlbaSoular 

The scholarship was made possible through funding from the Thornburg Foundation.
