Davie County Enterprise Record staff members Ray Tutterow and Mike Barnhardt won awards at the annual N.C. Press Association’s annual editorial and advertising awards ceremony in Raleigh on Thursday, accepted by John Carr, publisher.

Tutterow, the newspaper’s advertising director, won three awards in the medium-sized community newspaper category: first place in the small ad category for an ad for Penry, Terry & Mitchell; and second place awards in community ads for the 2021 Memorial Day signature page, and in the institutional ads category for an advertisement for Lambert Funeral Home published as part of a “Remembering 9/11” section.

Barnhardt, the newspaper’s managing editor, won a second place award for community coverage. According to the association’s category description: “This category recognizes what only great news organizations do – reporting news that matters locally to readers and chronicles the essence of their community. Judges will evaluate the quality of reporting and writing; coverage of local schools and education issues; human events, people, places, festivals, celebrations, reunions, etc.; aspects of local health and medical care; the arts including music, drama, theater, art and dance; religion; and community history and retrospectives.”
