The Class of 2014′s Rachael Levy (far left in the photo) was one of four local journalism students chosen to receive a $2,500 scholarship from The Deadline Club Foundation.
The other three winners were from the graduate programs at NYU and Columbia University.
The Deadline Club in New York City is the largest chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists, and was the society’s 2013 Large Chapter of the Year.
This is the second major honor for Rachael this year. In March, she won a 10-week Google Journalism Fellowship to do research, produce multimedia pieces and write blog posts this summer for the West Africa desk of the Committee to Protect Journalists in New York. She also gets to spend one week with the nine other 2014 fellows at Google’s headquarters in Mountain View, Calif.
