Mary Baxter, BA’88, won the 2012 International Federation of Agricultural Journalists Star Prize for print journalism. Mary’s article, “Lyme disease: the painful and hard-to-diagnose condition,” was published in Better Farming magazine. The judges said Baxter wrote “a beautiful piece using a nice mix of human interest story telling and scientific research, exemplifying great journalism. Although it’s a story about a sensitive subject, zoonoses, Better Farming had the guts to publish it.”
