KJ Mushung, publisher of NOVA Fortnightly and a reporter and copy editor for Potomac Local News, has won nine state press awards for work published in 2013.

The awards were given this year by the Virginia Press Women and the National Federation for Press Women for excellence in communications.

Mushung won first place for articles in science and technology, for online news, for writing for the web, and for website edited or managed by entrant (in the nonprofit, government or educational category). Mushung won second place in the single photograph category and third place for specialty articles. She was given honorable mention for: humorous columns, continuous news coverage (for the coverage of the Tyler Building flood on Alexandria’s campus), and photography.

Mushung has been a leader with NOVA Fortnightly from its inception in 2009 and spent most of that time as the newspaper training director, using her years of experience working for the media to prepare members of the newspaper staff for a career in journalism or to run screaming in the other direction.

NOVA Fortnightly serves all six campuses of the college, located in Alexandria, Annandale, Springfield, Sterling, Woodbridge and Manassas, in addition to its learning centers in Reston and Arlington.

Northern Virginia Community College has over 75,000 students and is the largest institution of higher education in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
