Readers of the Chamber’s BizVoice magazine have seen the name Candace Gwaltney quite a bit over the past 18 months. Candace has played an ever-growing role in analyzing the issues and telling the company stories in our bimonthly publication, as well as being a key contributor to other communications and public relations efforts.
Candace took top honors in two categories in the recent Indiana Society of Professional Journalists "Best in Indiana" competition. I like to attribute that in part to her journalism background at Ball State, but even that fine university can’t take all the credit for the strong interviewing, organizational and writing skills Candace possesses.
Her winning entries:
- Raising the Bar: Higher Education Goals and Aspirations (March-April 2008) in the Best Education Coverage category
- Fueling the Future: Reality Mixes With Hope in BioTown (July-August 2008) for Best Coverage of the Environment
Matt Ottinger earned an honorable mention in the environmental category for Greener Building Practices: Trials and Benefits for Indiana Businesses (July-August 2008) and Tom Schuman placed second in the Best Print Feature category for 2008 Government Leaders of the Year: Joe Kernan and Randall Shepard (November-December 2008).
BizVoice has now earned 50 state and national awards over the past 10 years. It takes a talented and dedicated staff to achieve such a consistenly high performance level. Congratulations to all. Keep reading BizVoice, Indiana’s only statewide general business magazine. If you’re not familiar with the publication, what are you waiting for?
