Honors College newsletter wins national acclaim after producing issue during pandemic

The newsletter produced by UWM Honors College students has won recognition from the National Collegiate Honors Council after producing an issue during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Aggregate took second place in the Student-Electronic category of the NCHC Newsletter Awards. Twelve Honors College students helped with the writing, editing, production and promotion of the Spring 2020 edition of the newsletter.

“The Aggregate team created this issue in isolation, following social distancing guidelines during the COVID-19 pandemic,” the team said in a staff-written story in the newsletter. “Though working alone, the twelve of us strove to produce an issue that highlights the amazing students and faculty that make up the Honors College in the midst of unprecedented circumstances.”

Winners will be honored in a virtual ceremony after the NCHC’s annual conference in Dallas in the fall was canceled because of the pandemic.
