Emma Dale served as editor-in-chief during the publication of the award-winning entries.  

"The staff is what made these awards possible," Dale said. "Their hard work and commitment to (Exploring the dark side of Greek Life) is what made the story as powerful as it was. I am so proud to have worked with such talented journalists. They make CMU's campus a better place."
