At an awards ceremony on Thursday night, the Michigan Interscholastic Press Association named City Voice Editor in Chief Declan Bradley one of the top 15 student journalists in the state as part of their Student Journalist Staff. The Student Journalist Staff is an annual MIPA competition open only to seniors and intended to recognize “graduating students who excel at their student media outlets.” New inductees, including the 15 recognized last night, join the association’s honorary “all-state student journalist team.”
Declan was also selected for a Special Recognition award as part of MIPA’s Student Advisory Cohort, a statewide group of student journalists who collaborate on inter-school projects, such as last year’s livestream hosted by The City Voice, and advise MIPA on issues affecting students. Declan was named as this year’s only Special Recognition awardee for “going above and beyond with participation and kindness to others in the group,” as well as his contributions to Cohort projects. “It’s students like Declan,” MIPA Executive Director Jeremy Steele said, “who make the Cohort a worthwhile experience for all of us.”
