Bill Swank Wins Two San Diego Press Club Excellence in Journalism Awards

A big shout out and congratulations to “Squaremont” Columnist and contributor Bill Swank on his two awards from the San Diego Press Club at the 45th Annual Excellence in Journalism Awards.

Bill Swank holds 2018 First Place plaque from the San Diego Press Club for his Clairemont Times article, “Deadball Nine,” at the unmarked grave of deadball era star William “Hick” Carpenter (Mount Hope Cemetery, San Diego)

Swank, the local baseball historian, won in fitting fashion about a baseball story.  His “San Diego’s Deadball Nine” won first place for The Clairemont Times in the Non-Daily Newspapers, Sports category.

Swank also picked up a third-place award for his piece “A Clairemont Probation Officer reflects on his past……” in the Non-Daily Newspapers Criminal Justice category.

As I have said all along this paper would not be possible without the help of so many, including guys like Mr. Swank, who takes the time each month to be active in the local paper.  He is a great writer and author of many books, I am proud and lucky to have him be a part of this newspaper.

Mr. Swank Thank You & Congratulations!!!!!!!!
