Congratulations to The Reporters Richard Brammer!

Richard Bammer, from the Vacaville Reporter, has just won a John Swett Award for a series of columns last year that examined vital school issues in the Vacaville Unified School District and neighboring districts.

Writing in a strong voice showing his compassion for public schools, his winning columns looked at the recent recession’s damage to local school budgets, the need to pass the governor’s Proposition 30 to halt more cuts, parental involvement in school reform, and how a local spelling bee showed the value of learning about the magic and origins of words (the bee contest words included ukulele, moccasin and ophthalmology).
