Clinton-Massie Local Schools recently named Gary Huffenberger of the Wilmington News Journal to the Ohio School Boards Association 2019 Media Honor Roll.
The Media Honor Roll recognizes media representatives statewide for fair and balanced reporting of news about public schools. Media representatives from more than 100 Ohio newspapers and radio and television stations were honored by their local school districts.
Criteria for selection by the local school districts include the media representative’s efforts to get to know the superintendent, board president, and district mission and goals; report school news in a fair, accurate and balanced manner; give a high profile to positive news about the schools, and visits the schools for relevant meetings and events.
“OSBA is pleased that so many school districts around the state participated in the 2019 Media Honor Roll program,” said OSBA Chief Executive Officer Rick Lewis. “OSBA joins those districts in congratulating the honorees and thanking them for fairly and accurately reporting on the successes of students, teachers and school boards, as well as conveying the many challenges they face.”
