PITTSBURGH, Dec. 11 -- Harold Turner, editor-in-chief of The Pitt News, the University of Pittsburgh student newspaper, has received an honorable mention in the 1998 Associated Collegiate Press (ACP) competition.

A senior writing student at Pitt, Turner graduated from Liberty High School in Bethlehem, PA in 1994. While in high school he played baseball, tennis, was on the chess team, and was a member of the National Honor Society.

The ACP is a division of the National Scholastic Press Association. Although it had college members since its inception in 1921, ACP was established as a distinct division in 1933. Today it is the largest and oldest membership organization for college student media in the U.S.

Turner is the son of Nancy and William Turner of Rose Avenue in Bethlehem.
