Braggin’ on: The Southampton Press

IT WAS BACK IN APRIL, but the word is still as sweet today as it was then: The Southampton Press (a Henninger Consulting client for some years) was awarded First Place in General Excellence and First Place in Overall Design by the New York State Press Assn.

Congratulations to Publisher Joe Louchheim, General Manager Courtney Ratcliffe and Editor Joe Shaw. The Southampton Press is a consistent winner in NYPA competitions and it’s always a delight working with them.

Braggin’ on: The Uvalde Leader-News

PUBLISHER CRAIG GARNETT recently sent along some exciting news: The Uvalde Leader-News won first place in general excellence in the 2011 South Texas Press Association Better Newspaper Contest.

The awards were presented in mid-April at the STPA annual convention. The Uvalde Leader-News competed in Division 3 for semi-weekly newspapers. It also received a third-place award for page design.

The South Texas Press Association is the largest regional newspaper organization in the United States.

In a brief note, Garnett said:


We had never won the general excellence division until undergoing the redesign that you completed for us. We now get extremely positive comments from judges regarding the overall appearance of the Leader-News.

The Uvalde Leader-News was a Henninger Consulting redesign in the spring of 2010.
Congratulations to Craig, Editor Carol Kothmann and designers Meghann Garcia and Gloria Resma.

Braggin’ on: The Ozona Stockman

PUBLISHER MELISSA PERNER bubbled with delight a couple of weeks ago when she sent the following note:


Just thought I would let you know we won First Place in Page Design at the Texas Press Association Better Newspaper Contest this weekend! Thanks for all your help!”

When I called to congratulate her, Melissa was still feeling the thrill of having won. When you’re the publisher of a small community newspaper, first-place awards are a big deal.

The Ozona Stockman was a Henninger Consulting redesign in 2010.

Congratulations again to Melissa and her colleagues!
