I’m a graduate of Burges High School, Class of 1984, and for as long as I can remember, they have had one of the best journalism departments among the city’s high schools. They proved that again this year with their seventh Pacemaker Award.

Hoofbeats, the school’s yearbook, won the national award. The Pacemaker Award is often called the Pulitzer Prize of high-school publishing. It is given to high school journalists for excellence in online publication, newspaper, yearbook, magazine and broadcast.

Burges won over more than 300 other schools. Longtime Hoofbeats faculty advisor, Pat Monroe, she knew it was an excellent book and that it would win an award. She said that even though they never get tired of winning the award, winning pushes the department to do even better the next year.

Congratulations to Ms. Monroe and the budding journalists at Burges High School on their win.

Go Mustangs!
