CPA LION'S ROAR 2015-16 Earns Prestigious Award

CPA’s LION’S ROAR 2015-16, themed, “Forward: Same Direction, Different Angles”, joins a legacy of award-winning yearbooks, becoming the Academy’s second publication to be named a Pacemaker Finalist. Each year, the National Scholastic Press Association (NSPA) presents scholastic journalism’s preeminent award, the Pacemaker. Entries are judged by teams of professionals based on the following criteria: coverage and content, quality of writing and reporting, leadership, design, photography, and graphics. The contests are open to any NSPA member publication. The LION’S ROAR 2015-16 joined only seventeen other books from across the nation as Pacemaker Finalists. The winner will be announced Saturday, April 8.  
Co-Editor-In-Chief AJ Thomas commented, “It's such a blessing to be a part of a team that inspires each other to work harder and make a product that our school truly cares about. Every staff member is so self-motivated and dedicated to excellence, and those qualities are the reason we can create an award-winning  and meaningful yearbook.”
In addition to the Pacemaker honor, the LION’S ROAR 2015-16 also earned several Quill and Scroll National Awards in the 2016 Yearbook Excellence Contest. Winners included 297 National Award winners from a pool of over 1,400 entries. CPA Quill and Scroll awards winners include:
