Congratulations to.

Catalyst: Chicago, which received the Society of Professional Journalists' award for Public Service--Newsletter Journalism.

"Who doesn't have a complaint about their high school guidance counselor?" asked Maureen Kelleher, associate editor for Catalyst: Voices of Chicago School Reform. "I wanted to show how the research backs up high school students' own voices."

The resulting article, "CPS Guidance Counselors: The Invisible Presence," reported that 40 percent of Chicago Public Schools seniors said that "no one at school talked to them about college or helped them fill out the applications. Five percent of all Illinois seniors dropped out of school; 14 percent of those from CPS alone."

Since Kelliher's article, CPS hired full-time counselors in 12 high schools on a pilot basis and opened a central office of post-secondary education.
