Congratulations to The Skyline Post staff for a new school record of 21 distinct state-level wins in the 2024 Michigan Interscholastic Press Association (MIPA) Awards.  

Winners include Editor-in-Chief Lucas Caswell (‘24) who was named to the MIPA Student Journalist Staff, which honors leaders whose writing and editing have been outstanding and have also contributed significantly to their school’s journalism program as a whole. Caswell was one of The Post’s founding writers and has served as an editor across multiple sections. It is safe to say that Caswell’s steady leadership and commitment are the engine behind the level of excellence we have begun to achieve.  

Caswell also netted 3rd place for his breaking news coverage of Skyline’s policy change for student-generated all-school announcements as well as an honorable mention for his Personality Profile of Athletic Director Andre Criswell.  

Max Feliks (‘24) was awarded first place in the Diversity Coverage category for his beautifully written, in-depth profile on the life of Rosa Montalvo, a local chef who immigrated to Ann Arbor from Central America.  

Oliver Pung (‘24) was awarded first place for his helpful and visually engaging infographic in his review of Skyline Students’ Study Spots.  

Sari Woo (‘24) was awarded first place in the Human Interest category, for her humorous feature on the Skyline Boys’ Tennis Team’s opinions on grunting. (Buh!)  Woo also won third place for Bylined Opinion Article, with a comprehensive comparison of online learning platforms available to AAPS students

Graduate Isaac Mack (‘23) took second place for an In-Depth Feature on the Skyline Cube, reporting on funding issues and how they impact equitable access to the college process.  

Ashley Han (‘26) took 2nd place for News coverage in a series on Skyline’s grading policies and also for Instagram Promotion. She also won an Honorable Mention for In-Depth Feature for her breakdown of the Skyline budget, before the current crisis.   Only a sophomore, Han has shown innovative leadership over the past two years and excellence in all roles as a writer, editor, and website and layout designer.  Han has been named as Editor-in-Chief for the 2024-2025 school year.

With the leadership of writer Natalia Murrell (‘25), the spring 2023 editorial board won 3rd place for its Staff Editorial on Skyline’s new grading policy.  

The Spring 2023 Sports Staff – Lance Caswell (‘23), Will Pace (‘24), Ryan Rzeszut (‘23), Nate Werns (‘24) and Graham Unsworth (‘23)  – took 3rd place for Alternative Story form for their innovative visual, up-to-date  coverage of the March Madness 2023 tournament.
