Gilliland's Prison Report Wins A Schnader

Potter County Native Wins One Of Top Awards

Former Leader-Enterprise Editor, Donald Gilliland, now an investigative reporter for the Harrisburg Patriot-News, has captured second place in a state wide competition for his report on the Pennsylvania prison system.

The annual William A. Schnader Print Media Awards Competition was established more than 20 years ago by the Pennsylvania Bar Association to honor journalistic excellence in news or feature reporting of the legal system and its operations. Named after a former state attorney general and PBA president, the Schnader Awards Competition is designed to recognize journalists who through their writing:

* foster greater public understanding of our legal system;
* inform and educate citizens as to the roles of society and the law, the courts, law enforcement agencies, and the legal profession; and
* disclose practices or procedures needing correction or improvement so as to encourage and promote efforts to improve and modernize our laws, courts or law enforcement agencies statewide.

The competition is funded by the national law firm of Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis LLP.

Too bad we no longer have anyone doing any kind of serious investigative reporting here. Elected officials are happy - no one here to hold them accountable. Miss ya a lot Don!
