El Vaquero Staffers Receive Scholarships
December 4, 2013
Four members of the El Vaquero staff were honored with scholarships from the Los Angeles Press Club Foundation Tuesday with checks presented by the foundation’s board member Fernando del Rio, a retired longtime producer, writer and broadcast personality for KCAL (channel 9) and KRTH radio.
Receiving awards were El Vaquero editor-in-chief Sal Polcino, photographer Kathy Bakowicz, managing editor Agnessa Kasumyan and sports editor Jonathan Williams.
Del Rio’s wife Anna, a retired television producer, was also in attendance. The staff of El Vaquero has garnished a record number of awards this year from the Journalism Association of Community Colleges and the California College Media Association, and has also forged an alliance with the Glendale News-Press, in which staff members have published several articles and photographs.
