Two other Bay Area community colleges also received the General Excellence award for their online newspapers. Ohlone College in Fremont received the award for their internet version of The Monitor, and City College of San Francisco was recognized for their efforts in producing The Guardsman Online.

The JACC conference, which took place between April 7-10 at Sacramento’s DoubleTree Hotel, brought together journalism students from community colleges throughout California.
