Randallstown, MD Chapter of NAACP Will Present Awards for Contributions to Education and Coverage of Public Schools

WBFF FOX 45, Sinclair Broadcast Group’s station in Baltimore, is pleased to announce that both the station and Project Baltimore’s Investigative Reporter Chris Papst will be honored by the Randallstown, MD NAACP chapter for their work focused on the education of children in the Baltimore area. WBFF and Papst will each be honored with an Excellence in Advocacy Award for their work covering education and public schools in the region.

“The Randallstown NAACP Excellence in Advocacy Award recognizes Chris, and Project Baltimore who have contributed significantly to benefit African Americans and other minority students who often confront challenges and obstacles to their education. Accordingly, the award is given in special recognition of his outstanding service to enhance success for students regardless of their background,” said Ryan Coleman, President, Randallstown NAACP.

The mission of the Randallstown NAACP chapter is to ensure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights of minority citizens of Baltimore County and throughout the United States by removing barriers of racial discrimination through democratic processes and promoting productive and socially responsible citizens who lead fulfilling lives and make positive contributions to society.

“WBFF and Sinclair are committed to getting results for people living in the communities we serve. Project Baltimore’s ground-breaking reports have prompted numerous investigations and served to shine a light on neglected issues and communities. WBFF’s unique reporting in under-served areas has sparked much-needed public engagement on topics of high importance and concern,” said Scott Livingston, SVP of News.

Said Papst, “It’s an honor to be recognized by an organization that has such a long and distinguished history of lifting up people in the Baltimore area. I’m proud of Project Baltimore’s commitment to relentless reporting to hold our leaders accountable on behalf of viewers in the Baltimore metro area.”

The award will be presented at a ceremony on March 28.
