Two recent grads contribute to Pulitzer-winning journalism

Two recent journalism graduates of the University of Oregon were recognized for their work on Monday with Pulitzer Prizes.

Michael Ciaglo, a 2012 graduate, was the photographer on an investigative series by the Colorado Springs Gazette that was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for national reporting on April 14.

The project, titled "Other Than Honorable," showed that an increasing number of soldiers, including wounded combat veterans, are being kicked out of the service for misconduct, often with no benefits, as the Army downsizes after a decade of war. 

We profiled Ciaglo in 2012 when he was a senior.

Nora Simon.Nora Simon, editor in chief of the Oregon Daily Emerald in 2010-11, is a member of the editorial page staff of The Oregonian, which won a Pulitzer for editorial writing about Oregon's troubled Public Employee Retirement System.

Simon was featured in this story and video we ran in 2011 about the Oregon Daily Emerald newsroom.
