|JOURNALISM ALUMNUS WINS PULITZER PRIZE
Congratulations to Michael Anastasi, vice president of the Los Angeles News Group and a member of our Advisory Board, for winning a Pulitzer Prize on Monday. Anastasi, a 2001 CSULB journalism graduate, and his colleagues at the Daily Breeze have won their first-ever Pulitzer Prize for their local reporting in a six-month investigation that revealed possible corruption in the Centinela Valley Union High School District and resulted in the removal of the superintendent. The Daily Breeze reporters credit Anastasi for pushing them to write Pulitzer-worthy work, according to the Daily Breeze’s own announcement of its Pullitzer Prize, which can be found here: http://www.latimes.com/local/california/la-me-breeze-pulitzer-20150421-story.html.
