Shull, a freelance photojournalist from Lititz who has been an invaluable contributor to the pages of the Record Express for several years, received an honorable mention for a photo he took of the Warwick High School track team during its win over Conestoga Valley.

Both Morgan and Shull were recognized during the Pennsylvania Press Conference held in Harrisburg last month. Their work was judged against fellow journalists in the same circulation class throughout the entire state. The Record Express is part of Division VII, which represents all news publications in Pennsylvania with a paid subscriber circulation of less than 10,000.
