Washington Post praises Silver Chips Online

by Cori Cohen, Page Editor
In today's edition of the Montgomery Extra, The Washington Post praised Silver Chips Online for its quick updates regarding the sniper attacks.

Junior Keith Costanzo was commended for his reporting efforts. Costanzo went to the different locations of the sniper attacks to take pictures. He then created an interactive map. The author of the article, Patricia Ford Loeb, reported that Costanzo was "thrust into the world of big-time journalism." (See the map here.)

Silver Chips print edition Managing Page Editor Kristin Hoven and Editor-in-Chief Stephen Wertheim were also quoted. The article continued to applaud Silver Chips Online for its daily updates. Parts of a story written on October 16, by Online Managing Editor Nora Toiv, were also included in the article.

The article noted how effectively Silver Chips Online kept the community updated on both the attacks and the school policies. Loeb wrote that Silver Chips Online "kept the site updated with changes to sports schedules and school activities."
