    The University of Texas Tower will be lit April 16 in recognition of student newspaper The Daily Texan’s outstanding achievements at the College Media Association’s annual convention in New York City. The Texan won the top award as the Best Newspaper at a four-year-school with more than 10,000 students. To be considered for the award, the newspaper submitted their 50-year anniversary coverage of the JFK assassination.

      Writing for The Daily Texan was one of my greatest pleasures and provides wonderful memories. The editors believed in me, and I came through for them. I met and interviewed people I never dreamed I'd meet. I was there when JFK ran for president, but I was too young to vote. We still had to pay a poll tax, then an effective and shameful way to keep minorities from voting.
