Grand Island Independent features editor Terri Hahn was named the 2010 Nebraska Press Women Communicator of Achievement (COA) at the group’s fall convention Oct. 9 in Red Cloud.

Media are welcome to use the article, downloadable here at no charge, that was written by Nebraska Press Women board member Diane Wetzel specifically for Sunhine Week 2010. It recounts the important role that Nebraska played in the legal interpretation of the First Amendment. Because the article was written at the request of Nebraska Press Women in celebration of Sunshine Week 2010, we ask only that you give NPW credit in an editor’s note. Thank you. –Ruth Brown, NPW president
