The Chester County Independent received first place for Best Personal Humor Column at Tennessee Press Association’s 2013 State Press Awards, co-sponsored by the University of Tennessee, on Friday, July 19. The Independent received the award for Mary Mount Dunbar’s 2012 “Mary’s Musings” column entitled “I didn’t know marriage came with cowboy boots and a chainsaw.”
The Independent also placed third in Best Single Features for Marney Gilliam’s story entitled “Civil War historian brings life to heroes of old.”
The Independent also received a total of five awards in Group I of the TPA State Press Awards. In addition to first and third place awards, the Independent received fourth place for Best Education Reporting and Best Headline Writing and fifth place for Community Lifestyles.
“I’m very proud of our editorial staff,” said Independent Publisher Tim Stratton. “They continue to represent fine journalism in America today.”
