About the program: When Edith Hughes died at age 79 in Sept. 2011, she was serving as director of community relations for Trib Total Media, Pittsburgh, as well as editor of two magazines. She spent 65 years as a reporter, proofreader and executive editor. A skilled writer and tough editor, Hughes trained several generations of young reporters working at Gateway community newspapers in Monroeville, mentoring, teaching and influencing their fledgling careers. Hughes was a very active and committed member of the Pennsylvania Society of Newspaper Editors (PSNE) coordinating the Weekly Renewal Workshop for many years. She was also instrumental in updating and enhancing the Keystone Press Awards, always with a keen eye for recognizing community and weekly papers. In honor of Edith's memory, the yearly "Weekly Renewal Workshop" was renamed to include community newspapers. With the sponsorship of Trib Total Media, the PNA Foundation and PSNE unveiled an expanded and enhanced program in 2012.
