This year, our news team won three awards from the Public Media Journalists Association. Our series on Roseland health, produced in partnership with local bilingual station KBBF, won second place in its division for collaboration. For one of the reports in this series, KRCB’s Adia White visited Roseland Elementary on their first day of school. Ninety percent of students in this district qualify for free and reduced priced lunch, but in the summer, families must find other options.
