Atlanta Press Club Impact Award
Richard Eldredge, VOX Teen Communications

The Atlanta Press Club Impact Award goes to someone who made a significant impact to the journalism industry during the last calendar year.  Finalists for the award do not need to be journalists, but people who furthered the mission of the Atlanta Press Club, which is to serve the evolving professional, educational and social needs of our media community, foster journalistic excellence and to advance the public’s interest in and understanding of a free press.

Richard has been with VOX since 2011 and has made a strong impact from the start.  In his current role, Richard teaches, mentors and facilitates journalism workshops for nearly 100 teenagers representing more than 40 local schools each year.  Richard emphasizes the ethics of good writing and the importance of a free press.
