The student newspaper at Northwest College, which reported on numerous controversies involving the two-year institution's president and carried on despite the firing of its adviser, has won the College Press Freedom Award. The Northwest Trail earned the award, presented by the Student Press Law Center and the Associated Collegiate Press, because "after [adviser Ron Feemster] was fired, the staff did not retreat from pursuing serious and controversial topics” (including about a religion-tinged recruiting campaign by the college's Mormon president), the law center's director, Frank LoMonte, wrote in an e-mail to the Trail's editors. Feemster wrote about his experiences as the newspaper's adviser on Inside Higher Ed last month.
