Jen Reed

Times-Republican Editor Jen Reed was recognized on Feb. 7 during the Iowa Newspaper Awards Banquet held at the Des Moines Marriott Downtown.

Reed’s entry titled “Should Iowa be forced to level the playing field for small public schools versus private schools?” placed second in the Best Sports Story contest where 21 entries were received from across the State of Iowa. In looking back, Reed’s story takes the highest award honor at the Times-Republican from what is believed to be in the last several decades, if ever.
