For the second time in five years, Dr. Mark Harmon was awarded the prestigious Sigma Delta Chi Award in recognition of his outstanding work in column writing. Sponsored by The Society of Professional Journalists, the award honors excellence in journalism across a broad range of categories in print, online, television, and radio.
"Awards are helpful in that they draw attention to the work," said Harmon. "I hope this award will bring some attention to the topics raised in my weekly Knoxville News Sentinel column."
Dr. Harmon joined other honorees at the awards banquet held at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. on June 23.
