We'd like to highlight our education and health reporter, Sammy Mack, who took home the first-place awards for best mobile journalist and best individual achievement in large-market radio. Last year, she reported a series of stories on a Jacksonville high school formerly named after the Ku Klux Klan's first grand wizard, which changed its name after the attention Sammy cast on the situation.

Our Elevation Zero series on sea-level rise also won first place, this one for series reporting in large-market radio. You can hear and read all our coverage from last fall, including five one-hour long special programs, here.

See a full list of WLRN-Miami Herald News' haul from the FAPB awards, and remember that you make this success possible.
