The Loudoun County School Board highlighted the work of Loudoun Now Managing Editor Danielle Nadler, voting Thursday night to nominate her to the Virginia School Boards Association 2016 Media Honor Roll.
Nadler has covered Loudoun’s education system for the past five years, working at Leesburg Today and as a founding staff member of Loudoun Now.
“Nadler’s coverage of district events has heightened community awareness of issues such as student assignments, teacher recruitment, weather cancellations, emergency situations, the budget process and facility needs,” the resolution reads in part.
The VSBA honor media roll program is intended to recognize the “many and varied contributions of reporters and editors across the state.”
“She has always been willing to make sure that she has the story correct,” Jill Turgeon (Blue Ridge) said. “Rather than trying to have the hot headline, she does make sure the information is correct and it does a lot of good in getting information out to the public.”
“Often times I go home after a long meeting and I’m tired and go to sleep. And I’ll get up the next day and look for Danielle’s article in the newspaper on what happened at the School Board so I can remember what happened,” Tom Marshall (Leesburg) said, to laughter among his colleagues.
