"After Jacqueline Rabe Thomas, Keith Phaneuf and Mark Pazniokas break the story on huge pay increases to top officials in a newly organized higher education system, they hammer away for more facts and information in an impressive flurry of aggressive bulldog reporting. Their persistence brings so much heat to the top brass that two leaders resign.The reporters also provide great reports on what is appropriate pay and how the new higher education structure was built and held accountable. Nobody brought more accountability to the system than these reporters. Impressive work."
"A superb series of investigative reports that had immediate impact and provided context at every juncture."
