Thanks everybody for your support of the site and for being part of this. It’s a proud night for us and — not to make too big a deal out of it — an amazing recognition of change. Note the “Professional” part in the Society of Professional Journalists. We aim to bring you the highest quality community news experience possible. But the community that makes this happen is a mix of the professional and the passionate. As we say here, anybody can contribute to CHS — and you do. This award is for you. Thanks.
