The Joseph M.A. Ledlie Award
                                Given for excellence in writing for The Springhillian

Joseph M.A. Ledlie was a journalist, an editor, and PR executive whose purpose was to see something, meet someone, to experience a thing, and then to tell the story, whatever the story was. Under his guidance as a student editor in the early 1960s, The Springhillian became the smallest publication in the country to win the top collegiate award of Columbia University for general excellence.  The Joseph M.A. Ledlie Award recognizes a budding journalist, writer or editor with a $250 cash award for the student who best fits the following criteria:

1) In honor of Joe's religiosity, the awardee publishes a piece that addresses Roman Catholicism or an example of the strength or tolerance of religious action or thought in the modern world;

2) In honor of Joe's politics, the awardee publishes a piece that captures the role of citizenship through engagement in the political process or service to the country;

3) In honor of Joe's daughters, the awardee publishes a story that features the intelligence, accomplishments or sportsmanship of a woman or group of women;

4) In honor of Joe's love for the South, the awardee writes a story that captures the true spirit, culture, literary genius, or excellence found throughout the region.
