Trib reporter honored for coverage of disabled vets

Saturday, Oct. 26, 2013, 6:49 p.m.
 

Tribune-Review reporter Chris Togneri received a Southwest Pennsylvania Media & Mental Health Award for his story, “Wounded Heroes Hunting Camp near Altoona pairs vets, disabled children.”

The annual SWPA Media & Mental Health Awards, produced by the Entertainment Industries Council Inc. in collaboration with The Staunton Farm Foundation, honor television, radio, print and online journalists for their reporting on mental and behavioral health issues in Southwestern Pennsylvania.

Togneri received honors in the best newspaper story or article category for his piece on a nonprofit camp that aims to help disabled veterans heal emotionally by providing the camaraderie of other vets wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan. He tied in that category with Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reporter Karen Langley for “Feds investigate treatment of mental health inmates at Cresson state prison.”

Journalists received their awards on Thursday in the Senator John Heinz History Center in the Strip District.
