Here’s Maria with George Jared and his two first-place awards for Best News Feature and Best Health-Related Story at Saturday night’s awards banquet of the Arkansas Associated Press Managing Editors in Heber Springs.

Jonesboro Sun staffer Kellie Cobb also took home a first place award for Best Page Design and Brian Smith won a first place award for Best Non-Traditional News Item.

The Sun won its third APME Mark Twain Award for cooperation with the AP – the second since Maria came aboard in 2007.

And Maria was elected president of the Arkansas APME.

Damn! I buried the lede!
