(Page 2 of 2)
Faculty advisor, Lauren Lillien, also congratulated the team for making it to the semifinals. “I am lucky to be able to work with such talented, dedicated, and hardworking students. They all inspire me, and will continue to make their marks with everything they do,” said Lillien, referring to all Mock Trial members, including Sosnick, Matthew Goldstein, Adam Lifshitz, Andrew Lifshitz, Samantha Lish, Glickman, Jonathan Greenberg, Jason Sulzberger, Sarah Fuchs, Tara Seidel, Elliot Fuchs and several others. The HAFTR Mock Trial team has made a lasting impression, and will now be on the radar of other schools for next year.
‘The Tattler’ best online
The HAFTR online newspaper, “The Tattler” (www.haftrtattler.com), has also achieved phenomenal success. At the Adelphi University 2013 Annual Press Day Journalism Conference, “The Tattler” won the Adelphi University Quill Award for Best Online Newspaper. I will never forget the joy that we all felt after hearing the spokesman announce this exhilarating news.
As I watched Sam Levinson and Katie Glickman, the editors of “The Tattler,” stride onto the stage to accept our award, I smiled while taking their photograph. All of the staff members of “The Tattler” had worked so hard, invested countless hours both writing and editing articles, and the hard work and dedication paid off! We beamed with pride as we posted the exciting news on Facebook (Like us - The HAFTR Tattler), twitter (Follow us - @HAFTRTattler) and instagram (Follow us - @haftrtattler).
Of course, we could not have done this without the support and guidance from our faculty advisor, Karen Wolf, and our supportive principals, Naomi Lippman and Rabbi Gedaliah Oppen. Special thanks to Matthew Maron, former editor-in-chief, who brought “The Tattler” back from a long hiatus. The entire staff hopes for further advancement and continued success at other journalism events in the future.
