Meghan Van Dyk (CLA '07) stands in the office of The Daily Record, where her reporting skills led to her being named the Rookie of the Year by the New Jersey Press Association.
She hadn't expected anything. Informed via e-mail, Meghan Van Dyk (CLA '07) braced herself-she had won.
Van Dyk, a reporter for The Daily Record, was awarded the Robert P. Kelly award from the New Jersey Press Association, an organization which supports and connects New Jersey newspapers.
"[The Robert P. Kelly award] is the rookie of the year award," Van Dyk said. "All my competitors were from daily newspapers with a circulation of 60,000 or less, which are most of the newspapers in the state."
Van Dyk noted that the newspaper only got two awards for reporting, and that the rest of the winners were staff members.
Months ago, Assistant Managing Editor of The Daily Record Joe Ungaro Jr. informed Van Dyk she would be nominated for the award. "I get a plaque. I want to hang it in the newsroom, because to me, it means more that in this short period of time, I've left some mark on the paper," she said.
While at Drew, Van Dyk was the editor in chief of The Acorn for two years. Now, she is a municipal reporter, covering four towns in western Morris County.
"It can be tough," she said. "I work with a lot of people who are twice my age, and it means a lot to me to be working on a daily newspaper, and having the responsibility of knowing everything that's going on in my towns. To be 22 years old and doing this is a different level. I feel like now I'm up and coming."
While on the newspaper staff at Drew, Van Dyk gained most of her experience as a reporter.
Shapiro worked with Van Dyk on The Acorn as copy desk chief and is now a reporter for The Villager.
Van Dyk took a journalism class with Adjunct English Professor Bruce Reynolds, who is also the editorial consultant of The Acorn.
"Meghan endured a trial by fire when she became Acorn editor at the end of her sophomore year," Reynolds said.
Van Dyk has plenty of advice for Drewids interested in pursing a future in journalism, or even those interested in writing. "For me… reporters were telling me there is a long climb from weekly to daily [papers]," she said.

Meghan van Dyk, Editor of Daily Record's Grassroots section
Meghan joined us today from Patriots' Path, in Morris County where she was with a crew of volunteers from the adopt-a-trail program that are cleaning up the trails. This park is a great place to walk, bike, ride horses, and enjoy the great outdoors and getting back to nature in the woods. Meghan also talked about an article in this week's Daily Record's Grassroots section that discusses great places to take scenic road trips in NJ, such as; Old mine road in the Delaware water gap, palisades parkway, wild life drive, etc.
