Bucks County Community College’s student newspaper, the Centurion, won 12 Student Keystone Press Awards this year from the Pennsylvania News Media Association Foundation. The student newspaper has earned 60 Keystone Press Awards since 2010.

“They won for stories about a bomb scare on campus, budget cuts, and a former Bucks student being the first to wed after a same-sex marriage law was passed in New Jersey,” said Tony Rogers, coordinator of the college’s journalism program. “They won first place for a package of stories called ‘The Lies of Our Parents,’ in which they wrote about the challenges their generation faces—a sluggish economy, growing student loan debt, and the prospect of not doing better than their parents' generation,” Rogers said.

The Centurion’s website is: www.bucks-news.com.
