The Banner earned a writing award for the article “To Catch a Thief,” a profile on PSC Business Professor Dr. Jim Thomas and his work in loss prevention.

Krystal Nolte (’04, business management and marketing) also received an award for excellence in design for the summer 2007 issue of the magazine.
