Miami Herald executive editor Aminda Marqués Gonzalez was awarded the National Association of Hispanic Journalists Presidential Award of Impact on Friday.
“Mindy not only represents the top layer of journalism leadership in the country, but is the only Latina editor of a large mainstream newspaper,” said Mekahlo Medina, NAHJ president. “Mindy is a product of NAHJ and she continues to hold true to our mission of more Latinos in American newsrooms. I am honored to recognize her work, achievements and her career at this year’s conference.”
Marqués received the award at the Hall of Fame and Honors luncheon at the conference for the National Association of Black Journalists and the National Association of Hispanic Journalists in Washington, D.C.
