To our Readers,

I have some news to share.

We've received word from the Inland Press Association that we've won its 2014 Community Leadership Award for large-circulation newspapers.

That's terrifically energizing for a lot of reasons.

Inland represents a huge expanse of print and digital newspapers from across North America.

But that's not the only reason we're so pleased.

This isn't just a onetime thing. It marks the seventh time in the past 11 years that we've received this honor.

Seven times in 11 years! That's an unmatched record of commitment to the public good that makes me so proud to work with our team in the newsroom and with all of the people working with equal dedication in other departments of the newspaper.

The award this year specifically recognizes the paper's dedication to reflecting the achievements of young people and the educational institutions that support them.

by signing up you agree to our terms of service
                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
 

Singled out in that recognition are our ongoing initiatives paying tribute to the Daily Herald's Leadership and Academic teams, The Suburbs' Top Teachers and Elena Ferrarin's Suburban Standouts as well as our organization of the annual Prep Excellence Sports banquet.

With all these initiatives, we aim to recognize and reward good works.

But more than that, we want to hold up these success stories as role models to inspire others toward good works, too.

Our most important job is to help make the community a better place.

The Inland recognition is an inspiring affirmation, repeated over the course of many years, that we're being true to that mission.

That's why I'm so pleased. I hope you're pleased, too.
