Maura Casey.

NCEW member Maura Casey has received the 2000-2001 Eugene C. Pulliam Editorial Fellowship.

Associate editorial page editor at The Day in New London, Conn., Casey will pursue a study on the gambling problem in our nation. She plans to produce cutting-edge editorials on one of America's fastest-growing problems.

The Sigma Delta Chi Foundation, the educational arm of the Society of Professional Journalists, chose Casey from among six applicants. "We were most impressed by her focus on solutions-oriented research into gambling, her experience in addiction counseling, her involvement in community and professional organizations, her employer support, and her amazing energy level," said foundation vice president Paul McMasters.

Casey receives a $40,000 cash award to take time from her daily responsibilities at The Day and generate writing on what measures various social institutions can take to combat gambling problems.

The award honors one of the original members of SPJ and former publisher of The Indianapolis Star, The Indianapolis News, The Arizona Republic, and The Phoenix Gazette.
