Duncanville Graduate Receives National Journalism Award



Duncanville High School 2016 graduate Karla Estrada was selected as a recipient of a National Federation of Press Women award. Karla received a first place rating on her soccer photo at the state level to qualify for the national contest.

Karla will be honored at the NFPW Communications Conference in September, where her entry will be judged for the Best of Best in High School Communications award. Karla is no stranger to this honor. She received the same award two years ago and has been a regular winner along with other journalism students from DHS. At this year's state contest, DHS students won more than 40 awards in every category offered for news publication sites.

Karla plans to attend the University of North Texas this fall to study Communications and Photography.
