Reflections 2011, Cistercian Preparatory School’s literary magazine, was recently named one of only 13 high school print and on-line student publications in the country to win the coveted Columbia Scholastic Press Association Gold Crown Award. Editor-in-Chief Zach Horton ’11 attended the Scholastic Crown Awards ceremony in New York to receive Reflections’ award in person, representing his fellow editors, Andrew Skaras ’11 and Alec Radford ’11, as well as the other students on staff. Faculty sponsor (and former student Editor-in-Chief) Michael O’Brien ’00 feels the award was well-deserved.
“The staff of Reflections has again worked hard to create a simple, elegant magazine that beautifully showcases the artistic and literary talents of the Cistercian student body,” O’Brien said.
This is Cistercian’s third Gold Crown Award. The last was received in 2007.
