PORTLAND, Oregon — The American Copy Editors Society honored Vicki Krueger of Poynter Institute on Friday night as its eighth Glamann Award winner.
The announcement was made during the banquet at ACES’ 20th annual conference in Portland, Oregon. Krueger was presented with the award by ACES President Teresa Schmedding.
The Glamann Award is named for Hank Glamann, ACES co-founder and a former national board member. The award recognizes people and organizations that have contributed to the Society and the craft of copy editing. Each year’s recipient is chosen by the ACES Executive Committee.
Her passion for the craft and commitment to editors is apparent in her work, most notably in the efforts she has made to administer NewsU copy editing training opportunities for ACES’ members and copy editors everywhere. In fact, ACES members have taken more than 1,000 NewsU courses. And more than 350 have completed the editing certificate.
“She started her career as a copy editor and no matter how far she’s climbed, she takes her copy editing heart and soul with her, pouring that desire for clarity, accuracy and quality into everything she does,” said Schmedding. “She scurries around the edges, introducing you to powerful people, always making sure copy editors have a seat at the table. We owe a lot of our success – both ACES and copy editing – to Vicki’s passion for our craft.”
