Society of Professional Journalists Award

2014 - Best Profile
First Place SPJ-Detroit for a profile of the first American to die in Syria's civil war. Judges’ comments: "What an interesting topic. And such a challenging reporting job, given the circumstances of Mansfield's death. I'm sure many reporters in Detroit wish they'd written this piece. Nice detail throughout. Great sources, some of whom surely weren't eager to talk. Some of the father's quotes stuck with me long after I'd finished reading."
