Dos Mundos editor receives award from K-State

By Angie Baldelomar

Clara Reyes, Dos Mundos Newspaper publisher and editor, received the 2019 Huck Boyd Community Journalism Leader of the Year award from Kansas State University on Feb. 14.
“I was very humbled to receive this award,” Reyes said. “Sometimes, you don’t think people are looking at your work, but when you receive an award like this, you realize there are people who do and (that) motivates you to keep on trying to do your best.”
The award honors outstanding work by community newspapers. Richard Baker, retired associate professor and news director of the K-State Radio Network, was the other recipient of the award.
Reyes, along with Reyes Media Group General Manager Diana Reyes Raymer, also participated as panelists in a discussion about minority voices. Other panelists included Bryan Richardson of The Manhattan Mercury and Mara Rose Williams of The Kansas City Star.
Before the panel, Bonita Gooch, editor and publisher of The Community Voice – Wichita, gave the 19th Annual Huck Boyd Lecture in Community Media.
All three events were sponsored by the Huck Boyd National Center for Community Media in the A.Q. Miller School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Kansas State.
