Kirsten Butler has become popular on the web after winning the National Society of Newspaper Columnists Educational Foundation Scholarship contest. Two judges gave Kristen the following feedback:
“A good combination of reporting and opinion with a tough look at her own administration. Liked the variety as well, from health care to stripping!”
“Articulate and well-researched columns on social justice topics. Her Voice and point of view is one to be reckoned with.”
