APME footnote

Mark Perrin, a drive train speciialist at Nordex, tightens bolts on a 24-ton wind turbine gearbox. Perrin is a son of Jonesboro Mayor Harold Perrin.

When the award winning entries were flashed up on the projection screen at Saturday night’s Arkansas APME awards banquet, I was startled to see one of my photos.

This shot of Mark Perrin working on a wind turbine component at the Nordex plant was on the cover of the Jonesboro Sun’s 2011 Outlook section.

It won a third place in the Special Project – Community Service category for Division III (largest) papers.

It’s fun staying involved with newspapering.
